If I should go before the rest of you
Break not a flower nor inscribe a stone,
NOT when I'm gone speak in a Sunday voice
But be the usual selves that I have known.
Weep if you must, Parting is hell,
But life goes on, So sing as well.

This week: Wouldn't it be Loverly! Last autumn Man Alive revealed the sorry plight of elderly victims of mugging on Merseyside. Response to ' The Old Can't Run Fast Enough ' was overwhelming; thousands of unasked-for pounds were donated and viewers wrote and phoned with offers ranging from secretarial help to holidays. One invitation in particular caused a stir: ' could 20 pensioners from Merseyside come to London at Christmas to see a show - all expenses paid? ' They could - and did, some for the first time in their lives. On film Michael Dean reports on this rather special ' awayday': on lunch in Belgravia with the Vicomtesse D'Orthez - the actress Moira Lister - on tea with Dame Anna Neagle and Tony Britton , on the view from the stalls at My Fair Lady, on a day which everyone - from the pensioners to the camera crew - will long remember.
About The Old Can't Run Fast Enough the press said: on someone's short list of awards for 19S0? (DAILY TELEGRAPH) it seems to me all the old have going for them is a vote ... they should sell it high (GUARDIAN) there was a time when such a programme would have created a national stir (THE TIMES)
