Summary In an age of salacious, youth-oriented media, Andrew Denton is heading in the opposite direction and seeking the stories of our elders. He will explore six very different lives in search of that almost-out-of-fashion idea: wisdom.This week, Andrew sits down with ex-White House Bureau Chief Helen Thomas.Age has not wearied Helen Thomas. At 87, the dean of the White House Press Corps is even more tenacious and persistent than when she first started covering American presidents back in 1961.From JFK to George W. Bush, she has reported on the highs and lows of Washington for 57 years. A vocal opponent of the war in Iraq, the former UPI correspondent now writes columns for a living, and when it comes to the Bush administration in particular, her voice these days is loud - and angry.Other Elders in this series are: broadcaster and naturalist Sir David Attenborough; philanthropist Dame Elisabeth Murdoch; journalist and best-selling author, Isabel Allende; former Australian Prime Minister Bob Hawke; and Catholic priest Father Des Reid. PRODUCTION DETAILS:An ABC TV and Zapruder's other films co-production. Executive Producers: Andrew Denton and Anita Jacoby
