The last of five programmes Presented by Dr Michael Argyle
Decisions about jobs, health and housing all depend on face-to-face interviews; the outcome of these decisions will depend on how both sides play: The Interview Game.
Body Language looks at some of the silent ways in which we communicate, and how interviewer and interviewee convey attitudes and feelings by their actions rather than by words.

Our sense of humour baffles them, our politics bother them, our preoccupation with tradition bemuses them.
Apparently, we don't wash, and we are morose and miserable even on holiday. On the other hand, we are polite and kind to animals. Each week, Derek Jameson looks at the way foreign TV reports this country. Tonight he examines the foreign fascination for both the Royal Family and the English eccentric; this involves joining the Japanese in their bizarre search for 'the surprise treasures of the Queen'.
