Singapore – Regional broadcaster Channel NewsAsia presents an all-new series, Turn Back the Clock. Turn Back the Clock is a five-part experimental series exploring the possibility of countering, even reversing the effects of ageing. The series re-stages the landmark “Counterclockwise” study by award-winning social psychologist Dr Ellen Langer in 1979, where she found that psychological lifestyle changes (when subjects were asked to live life as though they were younger) can bring about positive physiological ones.
In short, if you think yourself as young, you can actually make yourself physically and mentally younger. Turn Back the Clock invites five well-loved Singaporeans, who are currently in their 70s and 80s, to live together for a week, the same way they would back in their heyday in 1977.
