100 Jahre jung

To be forever young – the age-old dream of mankind finally seems to be coming true. Geneticists, biologists and physicians are working on new therapies that could double our lifespan. In Europe and America, drug companies are spending millions to develop drugs that could slow aging. We speak to scientists who are developing new magic bullets against aging, but also to demographers who paint a bleak picture of an aging society. And four centenarians tell us what it feels like to be really old.
