A 60's Sci-Fi tv series where each show was a one off story to give you a mind fuck. It ended soon after and was forgotten until the early 1990's when they started again...

Taught the dangers of Sexbots, nanobots, alien life, mars and our own immune systems... long before Jon Katz brough it to the attention of the public. (har! har!)

But famous only for The Outer Limit's Intro that differed slightly in the 60's version. "We can make your screen small... and make it wide again. We can reduce the screen to a soft blur, or enlarge it to crystal clarity... and beyond"

"There is nothing wrong with your television set.
Do not attempt to adjust the picture.
We are in control of the transmission.
If we wish to make it louder, we will turn up the volume.
If we want it softer, we will turn it down.
We control the horizontal and the vertical.
We can alter the focus, to sharpen or distort the picture.
For the next hour, we will control all that you see and hear.
Believe me, there is nothing wrong with your television set.
You are about to take an adventure.
You are about to experience the awe which is associated with a journey to - The Outer Limits."

Ranked as the 39th highest source of samples in music according to the Sample Source, the opening blurb of this show alone is reported as having been sampled by Hawkwind (Void City; Choose Your Masques), Meat Beat Manifesto (Marrs Needs Women; Armed Audio Warfare) and Snog's Born to be Mild.
