With Apollo 11 about to land on the moon, the Watts family have finally installed their first telephone, little realising how much their lives will change with its arrival. The phone sits in the hallway, witnessing the activities of the house, listening to the family's secret loves, fears and joys.

The writer Sarah Weatherall captures the excitement of using a phone for the first time, in the days before mobiles and texts, and when no conversation was private.

Directed by Anne Bunting.
