    This was a neat little story even if the ending left me with a few questions, good atmosphere and acting though. This was my first experience of Theater Five and I’ll definitely be checking out some of the others.

      It’s a pretty good series I think. Fairly quick episodes, many with a touch of the weird or strange.

      The series name was derived from it’s time slot, 5:00 P.M., telling science fiction and drama stories Monday through Friday. These show were tightly scripted, packing excitement and suspense. Many notable radio actors were cast throughout the series. Theater Five aired for 52 weeks beginning August 3, 1964 and ending July 3, 1965 for a total of 260 shows. I highly recommend Lift to Beyond from May 10, 1965.
