One square in London-seventy houses, about 400 lives...
The square reveals moving contrasts between rich and poor, loved and lonely. Tonight's programme shows the several faces of old age - at one extreme Mrs. Beecroft, the queen of her family, still dominating seven sons, eight daughters, and her teeming grand-children - at the other Mrs. Lyons, disowned and neglected by her family.
"The BBC-2 feature 'Six Sides of a Square' has been consistently interesting and well-written, and the fifth programme in the series, 'The More We Are Together' was quite as good as the others... As usual there were quite objective reportings, sensitive commentary, and excellent camera work." (The Guardian)
