BBC2 Sci-Fi/horror anthology series that ran for four series between 1965 and 1971. For the first three seasons, each episode was a dramatization of a science fiction short story: some were original stories writted for the show, but most were adaptations of existing stories. For the fourth season, the show moved away from sci-fi towards horror, following a change of producer. Most episodes were now original stories rather than adaptations.

Its producer for the first two seasons was Irene Shubik, who had previously created the similar series Out of this World (1962) for the Associated British Corporation.
