On the remote Norwegian Bear Island, used as a submarine base by the Germans during WW2, U.N. scientist Larsen sends a distress signal using an emergency NATO frequency and is received by scientific vessel Morning Rose.
Quinn Martin was the executive producer of this short-lived anthology series that focused on stories with a supernatural or science-fiction twist. It boasted the typical QM trappings: each act began with a graphic announcing "Act I", "Act II", etc.; expensive-looking production values and location shooting; popular guest stars like Bill Bixby, Lloyd Bridges and Roy Thinnes; narration by "Cannon" star William Conrad; decent scripts; and, of course, all those Ford vehicles.

Fantastic.I'vie been wondering about this series for years.My hopes were raised when the William Shatner 1998 series first aired,bearing the same title as this in the UK,but it was not to be.. Nobody here I have spoken to can remember it,but the episode that sticks in my mind is "No way out" in which,I think,Bill Bixby played a man who set sail in a fishing boat,only to return to port many years in the future(or could be the past!) It's so long since I'vie seen it.It was shown in the UK again in the early eighties ,by which time I possessed a VCR.I kick myself for not taping it.Please keep me informed as to any possibility of DVD release,or if anyone could help with a video recording of that show. Paul.
