From the late 1940's through the 1950's, in a world where space travel and nuclear annihilation were no longer merely the stuff of fantasy, science fiction began to achieve a new popularity. And, the work of noted genre writers began to be adapted in movies and radio programs. Based (however implausibly) on science, these radio broadcasts reflected the depths of the nation's fears, and the boundlessness of its imagination. The science fiction series presented here - including X Minus One, 2000 Plus, and Exploring Tomorrow - offer adventures that seek to find a place for humanity in a world of machines, weighing the value of life and beauty against automated convenience and cold efficiency. The mission of science fiction is more than an exploration of space and time. It is also an exploration of man's values of who we are, and who we want to be. This 10-hour collection includes 22 digitally remastered and restored atom age episodes.
