"Mr & Mrs Lockhart are the typical American Mr & Mrs who go abroad. Mr Lockhart is a businessman. He's comfortable, blunt, knows his own mind, enjoys his business and his community. Mrs Lockhart is the pleasant type of American wife. A thorough housekeeper, she belongs to both the women and literary clubs of her town, and she still retains the spirit of romance. Their complex situations we're certain, will delight the friends of this station each week."
