NEW YORK – Barbra Streisand is on the hunt for 100-year-old Americans to feature on her PBS series, The Living Century.
The documentary show, which profiles the lives of extraordinary 100-year-olds, will air five new episodes on PBS this summer, and Streisand, the show's executive producer, is looking for more.
"As more and more Americans face the possibility of exceedingly long life, it is important to explore how a few extraordinary centenarians lived lives that were richly rewarding and contributive all of their hundred or more years," Streisand said in a prepared statement.

Among the new films to be featured this summer on The Living Century are ones about Ted "Double Duty" Radcliffe, 100, the oldest living member of the Negro Baseball Leagues (search); journalist Robert St. John, 100, a pacifist who spent more than 80 years as a war correspondent; and Frederica Sagor Maas, 102, the oldest living screenwriter who made the transition from silent films to talkies.
