Series 1, Episode 4

The boomers take a wry look at leisure and having the time of their lives. A coach-load of greying, good-time girls help comedian Roy Hudd cheer up politician John Prescott. Not easy. A septuagenarian punk does his best to put a snarl on ex-Tory minister Edwina Currie. Esther Rantzen explains why she always preferred the over 65s. And Kenny Lynch fantasises over the perfect care home.
