Give an Hour: George, 104, explains the benefits of the internet


As people prepare for the clocks to go back this weekend, the BBC's "Give an Hour" campaign is calling on people to volunteer their online expertise to benefit others.

Richard Westcott caught up with George Higgs from Birstall in Leicestershire, who is 104 years old and uses the internet.

He writes his memoirs, emails his son and grandchildren in Canada and does a bit of shopping online.

His 87-year-old partner Stella Fawcett, however, does not have a computer and does not see the need.

So George has volunteered to give an hour to help her see the benefits of getting online as part of the BBC campaign.
