BBC – Exploring the World’s Oldest National Broadcaster

Broadcasting is one of those industries which at some point along its development no longer relies on technical aspects to make it successful, but rather on the content produced and broadcast.

(Image Source: Flickr) While there are still many elements of ageing that scientists don’t quite understand, one aspect that is apparent is that functional decline in old age – reduced cognitive ability and limited mobility, for example – can often be directly attributed to a lack of socialisation and minimal physical activity. While getting out and about and remaining active can be difficult for the elderly, particularly if they’re struggling with common age-related conditions such as a loss of bone density, it’s important for both their physical health and their emotional wellbeing to try and stay as active as possible, whether that means regular walks, taking a class, or meeting up with friends and family.
