Old Age: Do Not Go Gentle


Old Age: Do Not Go Gentle is a direct but gentle and sensitive portrayal of the treatment of the elderly in this country. Two years in the making, this powerful documentary by KGO-TV producer Evan White compared the American with the European approach to dealing with persons of advanced age and in so doing, showed the world of neglect, poverty and fear in which many of our elderly find themselves. For this demonstration of excellence, a Peabody Award.
