“Old” (60 min)

In 1997 Prime Minister Tony Blair promised the nation that there would be no forgotten people in the Britain he would build. Old is an investigative documentary that shows that being old and forgotten are tragic, undeniable realities for many people in Blair's Britain. Through a handful of characters we are given an insight into a grim future that could await any one of us. Eugene described his life; "I’m just waiting to die". 1,000 old people die alone and unnoticed in their flats every month. As the council worker clearing Margaret's flat says, "But for the grace of god, it could be me".
