Catherine Bramwell-Booth is the granddaughter of the founder of the Salvation Army, William Booth. She is 100 years old today. In this birthday conversation with Malcolm Muggeridge - himself now 80 - she expresses the wish that she might be allowed to live a little longer: 'I'm in love with life and life is loving '.
Malcolm Muggeridge , by contrast, feels he's lived quite long enough. In the Bramwell-Booth's home, Commissioner Catherine talks about the children she's never had, how the love she felt for her father may have made the search for a husband impossible, and, above all, the faith that has sustained her for so long.

A series of five films about ways of life in different parts of the world.
The Muria live in an isolated area of Central India. Their way of life differs from the general Indian pattern in many respects. One important difference is the independence of spirit encouraged in Muria girls and boys. They sleep separately from their parents in the ghotul, a dormitory and meeting house for the young. As members of the ghotul their dancing and singing display Muria culture at its most splendid. But their marriages are arranged by their parents. And at marriage the young must leave this carefree life. Many rebel against their parents' arrangements - in fact, they're half expected to do so. Narrator SNEH GUPTA
