[opening narration]
Narrator: Missing: one frightened little girl. Name: Bettina Miller. Description: six years of age, average height and build, light brown hair, quite pretty. Last seen being tucked in bed by her mother a few hours ago. Last heard - "Ay, there's the rub", as Hamlet put it. For Bettina Miller can be heard quite clearly, despite the rather curious fact that she can't be seen, at all. Present location? Let's say for the moment - in The Twilight Zone.

Robert Sampson & Sarah Marshall play Chris & Ruth Miller, parents of a young girl named Tina who one night cries out for help from her bedroom. Trouble is, they can't find her, but come to realize that she has somehow slipped into another dimension, at least that's what their friend and neighbor Bill(played by Charles Aidman) thinks, since by coincidence is also a scientist, and has always believed such things were possible, but also realizes that this portal will close soon unless one of them ventures forth into the portal to get Tina back... Entertaining if contrived episode isn't entirely believable either, but that glimpse into the netherworld is quite memorable and effective.
