The fact is that 'peace' remains among the least researched of all human ideas.
Throughout the world a small but rapidly growing band of 'Peace Groups' is emerging. Originally scientists and academics, they have now added housewives, teachers and many other professions to their number. They choose to study peace as coolly and expertly as defence experts study war.
Tonight's film examines their beliefs and studies their work - both in Europe and America - and asks how practical their ideas really are.
