For the aging population of a nation obsessed with youth, some good news: turning 80 years old is not fatal, and it might even be fun. That's the message of "80", a collection of interviews with 80 prominent octogenarians. Correspondent Tracy Smith sat down with five of them: Entertainer Elaine Stritch, Ben Bradlee of he Washington Post, White House correspondent Helen Thomas, TV Producer Norman Lear, and Hugh Hefner, founder of the Playboy empire. We asked similar questions of each: the answers varied, but all shared the opinion that turning 80 is not the same thing as being old.

OF NOTE: K.T. Tunstall
Anthony Mason takes us to the Scottish Highlands to hear KT Tunstall headline her first music festival.

She also invites us all along to a special birthday party where the biggest gift is her music
