OUT OF THIS WORLD Written by Isaac Asimov Presented by Boris Karloff Designed as an offshoot from the legendary Armchair Theatre, Out of this World was devised by television colossus Sydney Newman (Doctor Who, The Avengers) and Irene Shubik (Out of the Unknown) in 1962.

Also included are a newly-recorded audio commentary with producer Leonard White, an alternative presentation of Little Lost Robot, which has undergone the VidFIRE process to recover the studio look of the original broadcast version, audio recordings of two otherwise lost episodes and downloadable PDF of the lost episode Dumb Martian.
