BBC TV?s The Science of The Young Ones Proves power of the environment in ageing

Expert Comment from Programme Contributors

The BBC TV documentary series 'The Young Ones' demonstrated how changes in attitudes and behaviour can have a significant impact on the well-being of older people. Prism, The School of Psychology at the University of Exeter and Ambius, the environmental enrichment and interior landscaping company supported the series.

In the final programme, 'The Science of the Young Ones', residents of a care home were seen changing their surroundings using plants and planters supplied by Ambius. The experiment showed that older people who are given choice and responsibility feel happier, healthier and even show improved memory and concentration.
