Broadcast on NBC from 1950–1951, Dimension X was among the first science fiction radio shows aimed at adults. The weekly half-hour series featured stories adapted from some of the top science fiction writers of the day, and many of its episodes were later recycled by its better-known successor, X Minus One.
The entire series survives today in digital form, and can be downloaded from The Internet Archive.
