The Dimension of Imagination

On the 2nd of October 1959, the Twilight Zone premièred on CBS television and was an instant hit.

Rod Serling had had a few successes in television but he was frustrated by the censorship by sponsors and networks, who wouldn’t allow television to cover issues that might be deemed political. He came to the conclusion that he wanted control of his own show and used Science Fiction to write social commentary which successfully bypassed the stringent regulations, designed to avoid inflammatory material.

There is a fifth dimension, beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man’s fears and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area which we call The Twilight Zone.
