Science Fiction Theatre Beyond 1/3

Science Fiction Theatre was a syndicated science fiction anthology series. It was produced in the United States by Ivan Tors and Maurice Ziv.

Hosted by Truman Bradley, a 1940s film actor and former war correspondent, each episode introduced stories which had an extrapolated scientific, or pseudo-scientific emphasis based on actual scientific data available in the 1950s.

The program concentrated on such concepts as space flight, frozen dinosaurs, robots, telepathy, flying saucers and time travel.

It ran from 1955 to 1957, with a total of 78 half hour episodes. It was also known as 'Beyond The Limits' in second run syndication during the 1960s and alternatively as 'Science Fiction Theater'. "Science Fiction Theatre" was a forerunner of similar shows, such as The Twilight Zone and The Outer Limits.
