Jimmy Davidson is a cigarette salesman with pressures at home and at work-like most of us, in fact-but on this particular day Jimmy's Area Supervisor, Mr. Wood, is coming to check sales and Jimmy hasn'done so well lately. The two men meet in a dingy motorway cafe and over cups of strong tea they find themselves playing cat and mouse without knowing, at first, who is the cat and who is the mouse.
This is the first story in a trilogy of plays each dealing with the stress of modern day living. Don Shaw , the author, has incidentally written this evening's First Lady episode, 'I'm Talking About Us.'

Man and Science today
THE VIEW FROM SPACE
What has man seen from space during the last ten years? How can the findings of space exploration be used to control our environment here on earth? During the Apollo 8 mission astronauts Borman, Lovell, and Anders shot some highly original film of the earth's surface. Much of this, with film from other space missions, is used in tonight's programme in a remarkable and unusual examination of the earth from space. Taking part with the three astronauts is Col. Edwin Aldrin , scheduled to be first man on the moon this summer.
