The screenshot is from the pilot episode of the American TV series The Lone Gunmen (a spin-off of The X-Files). In this scene, the Lone Gunmen hack into a DOD mainframe and find some interesting files in a “government think-tank’s upload directory”. The source code, written in Scheme (a LISP dialect), appears to implement a few very generic classes such as “place” and “thing”.
jgc says: “The code appears to be from the source code for a game from the site of Jim Little at the University of British Columbia”.
