One of the Tonight at 8:30 series, Still Life is the play the movie Brief Encounter is based on.
In a suburban rail station, Dr Harvey removes a cinder from Laura’s eye and they fall in love. Subsequent meetings over tea, scenes debating respectability or love, and some sentimental moments transpire before they decide they must part forever. He is accepting a faraway post and she must return to a circumspect life. At their last meeting, a chattering friend swoops down and there is no chance for a final goodbye.
