Immerse yourself in a beautiful half hour of nostalgia with this Screen Guild Theater version of the 1945 film Brief Encounter. Laura Jesson is happily married to her husband Fred but in the refreshment room at Milford Junction railway station she meets Dr. Alec Harvey, an ordinary looking man in an ordinary coat one ordinary morning. While each waiting for their respective trains he helps her with a cinder in her eye from the passing express train. A simple act of kindness which would have been forgotten about had they not met again by chance the following week and stuck up a conversation. They arrange to meet the following week and inevitably fall in love, a love that was destined to fail from the beginning.
