Our Saturday Drama, by the writers Laurence Marks and Maurice Gran, is a love story from the time when everyone thought the world was about to end. When Dorothy arrives in England from Kansas to attend the friend of a wedding she finds herself the only American there apart from 'Shack' who works at the American Embassy. But she soon finds herself arguing with him over his flippant attitude to life and specifically Dorothy's marriage. But when she finds herself caught up in the crisis it is Shack who comes to her rescue and struggling to come to terms with the enormity of what's happening to the world they find themselves falling in love.
