TV station just for the over 50's

Yes we are to get our own special TV station!
Vintage TV will focus on music and popular culture from the 1950s to 1980s and feature some original programming.
The station, due to begin broadcasting on Sky and Freesat on 1 September, will also show new music videos for 500 songs recorded before the video age.
Music pundit and broadcaster Paul Gambaccini will be the principal presenter for the new service.
The station will also broadcast rare concert and performance footage and revisit news and entertainment shows from numerous TV archives.
Among the new programmes will be a show based on The Antiques Roadshow and aimed at music collectors.

I am sure it will do well but are we really interested only in nostalgia as we get older? Some of us like to believe that we also enjoy participating in current cultural activities.
