Celebrate the wit & wisdom of adults 75 years old+ who are living their lives to the fullest with a heartwarming PBS documentary, Lives Well Lived. We might say we honor our elders, but we are often separated from them and deprived of their experience and wisdom. And they all have a story to tell…
Sky Bergman’s Lives Well Lived celebrates the incredible wit and wisdom of people aged 75–100, who reveal their secrets for living a meaningful life. Encompassing 3,000 years of collective life experience, diverse people share life lessons about perseverance, the human spirit, and staying positive in the midst of life’s greatest challenges. Their stories will make you laugh, perhaps cry, but mostly inspire you.
PBS stations across the country will be airing Lives Well Lived, throughout September, in honor of National Grandparents Day. Viewers will enjoy the insights of dozens of fascinating individuals – 3,000 years of life experience – distilled into a delightful mosaic of essential life lessons.
