This award-winning hit travel documentary series returns for a brand new Indian adventure.

Starring a delightful new cast of well-known senior citizens - riding hero Bob Champion, entertainer Syd Little, actor Peter Dean, presenter Selina Scott, actress Susan George, polictician's father Stanley Johnson, actress Stephanie Beacham, and the show's first couple, comedy duo Janette and Ian Tough.

Embarking on a journey of a lifetime, this new four-part series sees the group travel thousands of miles to make a new home in Udaipur, a city in the northwest Indian state of Rajasthan. Inspired by, but otherwise unrelated to the blockbuster film, the series documents the authentic experience of the eight characters living out their golden years, to test whether they can set up a more rewarding retirement than in the UK.

Transmitting in the UK as The Real Marigold Hotel.
