Summary
Disc 1. In which we serve. The story of the H.M.S. Torrin, a British naval ship, from its construction through its destruction in World War II. As the surviving crew cling to life boats and wreckage awaiting rescue, they flashback to their homes and loved ones and in so doing recall just why they are fighting and whom they are fighting for. Disc 2. This happy breed. The story of a London family from 1919 to 1939, and their struggle to maintain a stable life in the period between the two World Wars. -- Disc 3. Blithe spirit. A cynical, self-absorbed novelist sets out to expose a fake medium and ends up with the amorous ghost of his first wife on his hands. Disc. 4. Brief encounter. After a chance meeting on a train station, a married doctor and a suburban housewife enter into a muted but passionate, and ultimately doomed, love affair
