    We’ve been tantalised by the idea of eternal youth since time immemorial. We’re always asking how we can live longer and better. Or, to put it another way, why can’t we all be like Madame Calment, who cycled till she was 100, smoked till she was 117 and died at the wonderfully old age of 122? Join veteran reporter Bill Gifford for a rip-roaring ride along the trail to the fountain of youth.
