The Festival of Passover will be celebrated this week in Jewish homes the world over. Can Jewish children still find meaning in events which happened in Egypt over 3,000 years ago? How much do human beings need such rites and ceremonies?
David Jacobs introduces a film made at The Rosh Pinah Day School in Edgware and talks to The Rev. Saul Amias, The Rev. W. W. Simpson and A Psychotherapist
(Repeated tonight at 11.7)
The first night of the Passover is for the Jews a great family reunion. It is known as the Seder ceremony, and all the foods they eat have a symbolic meaning-the unleavened bread, the eggs, the bitter herbs, the four cups of wine. Christians also have their symbols, and some scholars believe it was the Seder ceremony which Jesus celebrated with his disciples in the upper room. To the outsider, such rituals may look outdated, even theatrical. On the other hand, failure to find communal expression for his deepest feelings may be a basic cause of modern man's neurosis.

A middle-aged wife long since deserted by her husband is determined to achieve stability for her happy-go-lucky son and crippled daughter.
The apartment featured in the screen version of Tennessee Williams's play is an exact replica of the one in St. Louis where the author struggled to make his name as a writer. The play might also be autobiographical in other respects: his own sister made a collection of glass animals to make their dowdy flat seem more attractive.
