Only she survived. Only she escaped. Her experiences during her escape and afterwards in Communist Czechoslovakia were heartbreaking. Yet there is never a hint of self-pity In

By the end of the 70s, it's estimated that ten million people will be officially retired.
But do we plan sufficiently for retirement and how well do people cope with the abrupt change from life at work to life at home?
Tonight's programme looks at the problems and pleasures of retirement and examines what is being done to help the shop-floor worker and the chief executive to adjust.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
