This two part-programme follows a social experiment, in which a group of pensioners spend some time in company of children to see if it can improve their health and happiness.
Following experiments modelled to similar schemes to those in the USA, the six-week long experiment sees 10 youngsters hanging out with 11 OAPs, to see if it will improve the mood, memory and mobility of the older generation. By how much can spending more time with children, talking, hugging and having fun with them, improve your life?
The result of this experiment will be revealed in the second show that goes out tomorrow.
Old People’s Home for Four-Year-Olds is on Channel 4 at 21.00.
