Honouring Their Own

Old stages and stores can be painted and repaired, but once people are gone, they're gone.

That's what many on Newfoundland's Fogo Island believe...and it's the thing that inspired the senior citizens' club there to honour their own. Their most senior of seniors.
Over a year ago, the Roaring 50 Plus seniors club got some Federal money for a special project. A project that would see over 100 seniors over the age of 75 interviewed, on camera. The result...a collection of DVDs. A collection of faces and stories of a time gone by...told by the people who lived it.
In this show, we meet some of those seniors...and talk to some of the people who made the project happen.
