Preview – How to Live Longer: The Big Think

Paul Nurse - Live Longer

When TV and media drops its obsession with youth it invariably plays on older viewers’ mania with health and how long we’ll live. Nothing bring out our inner hypochondriac quicker than a documentary  exploring the ways science is seeking to address the biggest causes of death such as cancer, heart disease and the dreaded age-related degenerative conditions such as dementia.

In this film, Nobel laureate Paul Nurse considers scientific advances that open new avenues of treatment and considers the ethics associated with their use.
How to Live Longer: The Big Think at 9.00pm on BBC4.
