Active Life Stories:
Video & TV programs
Active Life Stories seek to debunk the myths of aging--
such as all old people are sick or cranky or inflexible.

70s, 80s, and 90s are continuing their careers, starting new activities,
exploring alternative life styles, and generally living life to the fullest
within their capabilities.
Active Life programs are broadcast
