Xenophobes every one, some Noble, some not.

stop listen, and learn.
will a fantasy culture and beings, we see ourselves in metaphor, listen and learn.
This story reveals deep and ancient reflexes from our Primal self, the Beast. Evolution, a process for outgrowing the animal self.
Twilight Zone was and is a tool for outgrowing our base reflexes, a mirror to see ourselves, that we may grow wiser with time; tolerant, more noble.
Thank you Rod Serling.!

Doesn't really work without visuals.

Good story that probably was very effective as a TV episode. Sadly as a radio drama, with no visuals it loses almost all of the impact. Too bad, since the core story and the acting is excellent.

Classic

Watched the Episode when I was was young, revisiting it in radio drama form was as good as I remember it
