In an age of salacious, youth oriented media, Andrew Denton looks the opposite way, seeking the stories of our elders. Now on DVD, this series of Enough Rope talks to six prominent elders of our tribe, to see what life has taught them.
Australians live in a society that worships youth. But in some cultures, it is the elders who are valued for their wisdom. In search of that almost-out-of-fashion idea, Andrew explores six very different lives, giving us a fascinating glimpse of these extraordinary people. The Elders: David Attenborough Dame Elisabeth Murdoch Isabel Allende Helen Thomas Bob Hawke Father Des Reid
Comedian, satirist, social commentator - potential Advanced Hair ambassador - Denton is one and all of these things. His utterly charming ability to combine his sharp wit with his knack of asking really tough questions at the right moment will makes ENOUGH ROPE must watch television.
