The two-part series, Baby Boom to Bust addresses one of the biggest issues of our time: global ageing. The world has hit an extraordinary turning point. For the first time in history old people outnumber the young on our planet. Today, one in every ten persons is over 60. By 2050 it will be one out of five - over two billion people. In some developed countries there are so many elderly and so few births that the population is actually dying off. And in parts of the developing world, the numbers of old people are growing at an even more astounding rate.
