'For his ABC Television series Elders, Andrew Denton interviewed twelve diverse but well-known people over the age of 65, with the express aim of discovering what lessons they have learned in their lives and what values they have come to cherish most. The conversations were surprising, illuminating, humorous, thoughtful and candid. It was compelling television, and it makes inspiring and riveting reading. All the interviews from both series feature in this book, which also includes material that never made it to air.
'Featuring: Alan Alda, Dame Elisabeth Murdoch, Muhammad Yunus, Bob Hawke, Sir David Attenborough, Isabel Allende, Rosalie Kunoth-Monks, Clive James, Father Des Reid, Helen Thomas, Richard Dawkins and Helen Bamber.' (From the publisher's website.)
