The Real Marigold on Tour

Now this is how to grow old disgracefully!

Now this is how to grow old disgracefully! Japan doesn’t know what’s hit it when Wayne Sleep, Bobby George, Miriam Margolyes and Rosemary Shrager blast in for the second part of this special.

The new arrivals want to find out what life is like for retirees in the Land of the Rising Sun, where their contemporaries are lean, lithe and full of energy – many of them work, having got jobs through the Silver Human Resource Centre.

Our fabulous four all try working life in Kyoto and Miriam and Rosemary let it all hang out when they get naked at a traditional public baths.

‘This is quite liberating,’ declares Rosemary before urging Miriam not to break wind in the pool.
