Summary

We look at elderly care as a conference discusses the 'silver economy' in Helsinki. Professor Chris Alford of the University of the West of England demonstrates an autonomous vehicle aimed at senior citizens. Bethan Harris is the director of Collectively, and explains her organisation's approach to changing building design to stop isolation. The former prime minister of Finland, Esko Aho, discusses his country's approach to alerting the world to the challenges and opportunities of an ageing population. And we meet some older people who are benefiting from the latest developments in technology. Also in the programme, we hear what's at stake in a court case at the European Court of Justice in Luxembourg, examining whether the way Facebook transfers personal data to the US is legal. Plus, Steve Humble, chief executive of Creative Home Engineering, tells us why a panic room has become the latest must have accessory for many celebrities and chief executives.
