People Under Pressure

A classic story of fear in the nuclear and information age. Regular people turn to animals when faced with survival, but only defined in the mind by media. Seem archaic or a haunting warning from the past even more applicable today.

Vintage Twilight Zone.

This episode packed quite a punch when it was aired in 1961. The Cold War was very real and the threat of "The Bomb" was very much in peoples minds.

Adapted to radio/audio it still works very well. A great episode!

A very good update of the original Serling classic

Ernie Hudson stars in this great update of the original Rod Seeking story. A nice modernization of the original material.
