' Intimate Snapshots'
(The important things happen in the Mind : the rest is background)

This is an argument between two people. One argues that life is nothing but a series of meaningless repetitions, day after day, and suggests that somehow men and women should try to escape. The other holds that there is no escape from the outward daily repetitions, but that they are merely a background which does not matter. The real experiences of life, he says, take place in the mind. The examples cited are an Underground tube-lift conductor, a charwoman, and a newspaper reporter. In the latter part of the programme, the other protagonist, much to the indignation of his opponent, seizes the three examples, who are now made to take his side.
