Do you want to stop ageing? Do you want to live forever? Can science help you cheat death? In this pioneering documentary, Professor Rose Anne Kenny takes us through the science and the consequences of living longer lives.
This documentary explains what is happening in age prevention by showing the audience how they can lengthen their own life spans and explaining how some scientists now believe they are on the way to finding the "Elixir of Life".
Such power over life itself poses profound questions: what impact is it going to have on our futures, on our finances and on our societies? What plans should our governments and state bodies begin making to prepare for an ever-ageing population? Do people really want to live longer and suffer the inevitable weakening in their capacities? And is it morally right at this most
essential level to transcend human fallibility and assume the role of God?
