In this science-fiction anthology series host Truman Bradley introduces stories extrapolated from actual scientific data available in the 1950′s, concentrating on such concepts as space flight, UFO’s and mental telepathy.
Season 1 Ep.06: No Food for Thought
A Nobel Prize-winning doctor working in rural Arizona is visited by the county health officer after the unusual death of one of his assistants. The secretive scientist is developing a synthetic nutrient that, they learned too late, has an unfortunate side effect: creatures using it become highly susceptible to deadly viruses.
Scientific speculation from the 1950s told in a science fiction format. That was the basis for this anthology of futuristic stories, hosted and narrated by Truman Bradley.
The series speculated on such things as visitors from other planets, UFO incidents, space fight, espionage, technology, and miracle drugs that could cure all ills. Stories of crackpots, who turn out to be visionaries, and eyewitnesses to the fantastic, fighting to be believed. The show also utilized experts as consultants to help keep the show within the known realm of the scientific possibilities speculated at the time.
