Beyond Tomorrow was an SF anthology series developed for CBS in the spring of 1950. It was meant to be CBS's first science fiction radio program, but despite the show being announced in the newspapers it is uncertain whether it was actually broadcast. Three shows were recorded, with ‘The Outer Limit’ also being used as an audition show under the original series title ‘Beyond This World’. Editor of Astounding Science Fiction magazine John W. Campbell Jr. was a consultant for the series, but he did not present the show (he did present the later series Exploring Tomorrow on the MBS network). The dates shown below are presumed to be the broadcast dates announced in the newspapers.
Episode 1: The Outer Limit (Beyond This World Audition Show)
The pilot of an experimental rocket plane goes missing during a test flight. Given up for dead, he unexpectedly returns with a grave warning for Mankind.
First broadcast: 23 February 1950.
Original Story by Graham Doar.
