Conflict takes over when communications break down in this series of five programmes about situations that depend on good communications - work, family, school, politics, even diplomacy.
President Nixon's cautious words on the explosive subject of school desegregation have pleased no one. Blacks and Liberals think he's against it. Southern Conservatives think he's for it - and they're all angry.
To clear up the confusion, a Senate Committee holds a set of hearings, headed by Kennedy-style Democrat Senator Walter Mondale. Their target is the Justice Department - whose job it is is to enforce the Supreme Court rulings on desegregation. By discovering just how it enforces them, Mondale hopes to expose Nixon's real position.
It's a classic political duel, conducted through all available media, ending with a Perry Mason-style cross-examination of the Attorney General of the United States. Afterwards, the question remains: Would British politicians behave differently?
