America, for so long regarded as the land of the young, is rapidly ageing. Teenagers are now outnumbered by the over-65s. Within 40 years it is estimated that 60 per cent of the population will be over 70 and the country's the first in the world to push up the retirement age to 67 for men and women.

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.

images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
