What is the secret to living large in old age? This week Dateline meets a squad of octogenerian Japanese cheerleaders and a famous TV writer challenging assumptions about people in their 90s. Can old age be as exciting as youth? On this week's Dateline we meet people in their 80s and 90s who are looking to the future, not the past - leading fulfilling lives and staying active as they approach their centenary. In Cheerleading Grannies, we meet 86-year-old Fumie Takino, the founder of Japan Pom Pom, a cheerleading squad with an average age of 70. In Not Dead Yet, the writer of The Jeffersons and All in the Family, Norman Lear, lets us into his daily life, which still involves producing TV show - on the day we visit him he's watching auditions for a new sitcom, focused on the lives of elderly people.
