Music on this show not credited is by Terry Rusling. He did may electronic pieces for CBC radio and is included in John Cage's Notations. The show starts with McLuhan quoting Kierkegaard's remark about life having to be lived forward and understood backward. It features him in his home, interviews his wife and his daughter preparing for marriage. It also features him in a go go bar talking about the meaning of the dancer and the experience there. He appears awkward in the situation around his daughter as she is fitted for a dress. He discusses the significance of the ritual while this is going on. The documentary intrudes on personal space in a way that seems relevant to his theories.
