The program, hosted by J. Parrott, covers major domestic and world-wide political and economic events presented and discussed by various correspondents and commentators. David Anable reports news on the national scene that deals with the budget deficit and US trade deficit among some others topics, and Paul Van Slambrouck delivers news on the international scene that includes commentary on the African president P.W. Botha, political situation in South Africa and in the Middle East. Louis Wiznitzer who interviewed Brazilian president Sarney, successor to the late president Tancredo Neves, about his plans and programs, delivers his report on the political and economic situation in Brazil, and Janet Domowitz, who interviewed two Favela (Brazilian slums) residents about their life there, describes the conditions and accommodations of the dwellings as well as their inhabitants. Artist Robert Motherwell, a receiver of a lifetime contribution to the arts award from MacDowell Colony, speaks about modern art in America and his style and views. The program contains a commentary by an unidentified meteorologist Bob Cohen on the complexities of weather forecasting, and Catherine Bruder and Jeffrey McCrehan deliberate on the burden of rising costs of higher education. Dr. Mortimer Adler reflects on the importance of philosophy for the layman, the future of humanity, and the good and bad points of the 20th century. Some more current news follows before the program concludes with the narration of a short story "A place in the silence" written by Timothy Aeppel and read by Gail Freeman.
