Season 3 Ep.02: Anniversary of Murder
In the midst of an adulterous relationship, a successful business man and his mistress are driving home one night when they accidentally cause the death of a young bicyclist. They desperately try to cover up the tragedy, but exactly one year later the man hears the dead boy’s final words on his office dictaphone.
Join host John Newland, your guide into the world of the unknown, “One Step Beyond“, a classic TV series that aired in 1959. Based on unexplained real life stories, we are taken beyond the five senses through dramatizations of supernatural happenings to everyday people.
Outside the known is irreality, and one step beyond that is Surrealism. John Newland introduces reported cases of supernatural phenomena, whose poetry is revealed in magnificent and almost brutally compressed dramatizations. One Step Beyond was mainly filmed at M-G-M Studios, Hollywood, and partly at M-G-M British Studios, Borehamwood, Herts. It premiered nine months before The Twilight Zone , and was also known as Alcoa Presents: One Step Beyond. All episodes are directed by Newland himself, a dab hand whose trademark is subtle, balletic camera work. This series fed the nation’s growing interest in paranormal suspense in a different way. Rather than creating fictional stories with supernatural twists and turns, this program sought out ‘real’ stories of the supernatural, including ghosts, disappearances, monsters, etc., and re-creating them for each episode. No solutions to these mysteries were ever found, and viewers could only scratch their heads and wonder, “what if it’s real?”
