"Where is the knowledge we have lost in information? Where is the wisdom we have lost in knowledge?" It's this quote from T. S. Eliot that inspired Andrew Denton to seek out prominent elders of our tribe, each over 65, to see what they had learnt from life so far. Series two of Elders With Andrew Denton begins with Alan Alda. At 69, many of us would be slowing down in preparation for our seventh decade, but not Alan. In that year he was nominated for an Oscar, a Tony, an Emmy, and published a best-seller.
