Head Start

This 9-program series confronts the fears of growing older with its look at the many alternatives to inactive retirement. A wide range of alert and vital people discuss choices they have made. The series concerns itself mainly with people who have lived their lives outside the spotlight, but also features celebrities such as former Governor General Roland Michener. Writer Max Braithwaite and his wife Aileen, themselves seniors, comment on attitudes, the folly of waiting, and the importance of making life as rewarding as possible. Their humorous remarks and full lifestyle are testimonials to a happy old age.
