Description
Episode Description
This program details the various attitudes people both elderly and non-elderly have towards aging and getting older, and the activities older people take up to stay connected, fit, and engaged with the world around them.
Series Description
"Three years ago, the philanthropic Chicago Community Trust invested three million dollars to use the powerful medium of television to address pressing Chicago problems. The Trust chose WTTW to produce documentaries and town meetings and to purchase programs on three subjects in as many years. The first year was devoted to environmentalism, the second year took on the tough problems of our city's youth -- one documentary was about an adolescent at the crossroads of mature adulthood and delinquency. 1992 was devoted to aging in Chicago and included the programs submitted in this entry, which are: Something to Live For, When She Grows Old, Senior Fair, and 'Celebrity Spots.' "The Chicago Matters project includes extensive promotion and outreach activities, including the enclosed brochure. The project is initiated each year with a seminar bringing together the city's and nation's experts on the subject. "And, WTTW is honored to have had Chicago Matters renewed for another three years. (This year's subject is racism.)"-- 1992 Peabody Awards entry form.
