Four films about the common experiences which highlight people's lives.
2: The Happiest Day?
Three couples launch themselves into an institution that seems more popular than ever, despite the growing divorce rate.
Les and Frances Higginbottom from Liverpool, marrying on the dole, living with in-laws, prospects look bleak. June and Bill Griffiths tie the knot in style in Perthshire and start off with all the advantages that money can bring. Georgle and Tom Stirling are first cousins, and travelling show people. She has been married before but both are sure this time it's for ever. Reporter Bernard Falk follows them through their happiest day and listens to advice on how to make marriages stick from agony columnist Claire Rayner and a couple who have been married for over half a century.

Her parents were always keen traders, ready to sell anything on the farm from the horses to the furniture, and Rosemary Watson decided early that she was going to be a cattle dealer. She finds it a lonely job. Farmers are chary, other dealers ' more like sparring partners than friends'. It is, she says, very much a man's job in a man's world.'

'Things like thees cannot happen in Berlin!' says a very Germanic and extremely uninformed policeman during Charlie Chan's latest caper - a chase after spies who have stolen a remote-control aircraft-guiding device. It begins in Honolulu and ends at the 1936 Olympic Games in Berlin where Number One son is, inscrutably, a member of the US swimming team....

This is the second in a series of six conversations with some of the grand old master photographers of this century. Bill Brandt
Bill Brandt is regarded as one of the great photographers of this century - photographer's photographer who has only recently caught the attention of a larger public. Lawrence Durrell has written that 'Brandt uses the camera as an extension of the eye -the eye of a poet*. Yet this gentle and courteous man shakes off all accolades. He has said and written almost nothing about his own work and his refusal to be drawn into any conversation about his photography is legendary. This is the first time that he has agreed to be filmed, and, talking to Peter Adam , he shows some of his favourite photographs - among them some of the pictures he took of Paris in the 20s, the compassionate photographs he took in Britain during the Depression and the Second World War, his nudes and the many portraits of famous people. Reserved and disarmingly modest, he allows a rare insight into the personality of the artist who took them.
