    In/for ages, documentary on/about?!

    "This is our first real holiday ____ ages." My intuition tells me to put "in", but the answer seems to be "for". Are both options interchangeable here?

    Last night we watched a documentary ____ Egypt. I think both "on" and "about" are fine here, but feel free to correct me!

    Thank you
    Dear folks, I am an ESL student so don't ever hesitate to correct me, even the slightest details!

    Both options are acceptable in both cases.
