Finished at 50

A couple of days back I wrote about the issue of employment and older people. This followed a blog post from the Economics honcho from the BBC.

Well yesterday the BBC had a programme giving a different slant to tale of employment, well the lack of it, when you 50-plus.

If you are in the UK you can watch the programme on iPlayer. If you are overseas - sorry!

I don't really like the "personal story" approach to major economic/social issues, however, this was done well.

Like the programme, I offer no solutions, it is a sad story when people are out of work at 50. A simple as that. Dick Stroud

Can you let us Yanks know when the program might be posted on YouTube for worldwide audiences? I've seen many BBC program(me)s on YouTube.

I hage no idea when it will make it to YouTube - if I do hear that it goes international I will write a blog posting or use Twitter to announce it.
