Series Description

Premiered January 1983 Since January 1983, FRONTLINE has served as American public television's - PBS - flagship public affairs series. Hailed upon its television broadcast debut as "the last best hope for broadcast documentaries," FRONTLINE's stature over 23 years is reaffirmed each week through incisive documentaries covering the scope and complexity of the human experience. Series release date: 1/1983

Program Description

"I began my journey as a voyeur in the landscape of old age, but when it was over I was an insider," says FRONTLINE producer Marian Marzynski. Marzynski, who calls himself somewhere between a "boomer and a geezer," takes viewers on a personal journey into America's way of growing old. As the baby boom generation begins to anticipate old age, Marzynski settles into the life of Miami Beach's condo complexes, investigating the retirees' struggle to leave behind their old lives and to find new meaning and new joy in life's final chapter.
