Old Peo­ple’s Home­for 4 Year Olds

TV Times - - Tuesday -

REAL Life / 9.00pm / C4

Based on a scheme in Amer­ica that has been run­ning for over 25 years, 10 four-year-olds and a group of old peo­ple are brought to­gether in this two-part se­ries. The aim is to see if mix­ing with the young­sters im­proves the men­tal and phys­i­cal abil­i­ties of the OAPS. Most of the el­derly par­tic­i­pants say their life is dull and un­ex­cit­ing, but can the chil­dren cheer them up with their nat­u­ral en­thu­si­asm and joy for life? The ex­per­i­ment will last for six weeks and the ini­tial re­sults seem pos­i­tive. One gen­tle­man in par­tic­u­lar, Hamish, 89, stays hid­den be­hind his paper, but by week three is play­ing sleep­ing lions, sur­rounded by gig­gling lit­tle peo­ple. Con­cludes to­mor­row.
