The Age Wave. A new age is dawning in the west: old age. People are living longer and producing fewer children, and this trend is leading to profound social change. For the first time in human history, the old will outnumber the young and, within a few years, the impact will hit society hard. The workforce will shrink and the numbers of retired people will swell, so placing an unbearable strain on both pensions and health services. The remedies necessary to stave off disaster are startling, as John Penycate reports.

Tate Modem The first in a new four-part series exploring the stories behind the art in the new Tate Modern gallery. Rothko's Rooms. On 25 February 1970, the same day that the great American abstract artist Mark Rothko committed suicide, nine large canvases painted by him -the Seagram Murals - arrived at the Tate gallery. These were originally commissioned for a New York restaurant but withdrawn by the artist, after which the then director of the Tate,
Norman Reid , convinced Rothko that a quiet, meditative room would be set aside for their display at the gallery. This intimate documentary portrait of an intense, dedicated artist contains contributions from Norman Reid , architect Philip Johnson , artist Sean Scully , and Rothko's children and associates.
