Produced by ROGER OWEN
How do people choose each other -and why? This first programme looks at such phenomena as computer dating and ' arranged' marriages. What is romantic love? How do people know they are in love? Is there a more objective guide to matrimony? Isn'there a pattern in marital conflict? What do Marriage Guidance Counsellors do-and why do they do it? What is the state of the divorce laws? Is marriage especially difficult in our days? These are some of the themes in this series.
There are contributions from a wide assortment of people-married and single-and some distinguished speculations from such names as Marjorie Proops , Dr. Edmond Leach , Sir Alan Herbert , and Professor 0. R. MacGregor. The series offers no answersand raises many questions.
