About this work


The sixth in a 7-part series in which Robert Winston looks in detail at the life of the human body in chronological order from birth to death. This part looks at ageing. Winston meets Bud and Viola, an elderly couple who live on a farm in Kansas where they've been for 45 years. We explore ageing vision through the later work of painter Claude Monet. Other factors of ageing such as wrinkley skin and baldy heads are explored as are the renewal of internal organs. Winston describes why only we, with the exception of pilot whales, go through the menopause.
