A drama by Arthur Hailey.

Arthur Hailey, who wrote Flight Into Danger, James Doohan, who starred in it, and David Greene, who produced it, combine forces again in tonight's play.
Frank Mason, a successful salesman, is happily married and has one young daughter. His life is conventional, uneventful until a brutal child murder takes place in the close-packed Canadian town in which he lives. Mason is as shocked as any of his neighbours and colleagues-and then, cruelly and like a bolt from the blue, the Shadow of Suspicion falls upon him.
(Telerecording presented by arrangement with the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation)

Do you live longer if you're married or single? If you live in a city or in the country-if you are a bank-clerk or a bookmaker-or, for that matter, if you are an elephant or a queen bee?
Tonight's programme contains a great many facts about the vital question of longevity.
