Rod Serling Talks Twilight Zone in Vintage Audio Turned into Fun Animated Video
Something as brilliant as “The Twilight Zone” could only come from the mind of a brilliant individual, and the man responsible for the series was of course Rod Serling. The show’s creator and host, the late Serling used science fiction and fantasy to tell stories quite unlike anything on the small screen then or since, and the series remains one of the best to ever hit the airwaves.
Fans of “The Twilight Zone” will want to check out a 5-minute video the folks over at PBS Digital Studios’ Blank on Blank just put together, which gives new life to a vintage interview Australian radio presenter Binny Lum conduced with Serling back in 1963. The audio was dug up from The National Film and Sound Archive of Australia, and it’s likely you’ve never heard it before.
In the interview, which is unsurprisingly poignant and deep, Serling talks about his childhood and the inspirations behind “The Twilight Zone,” and he also digs into the limitless potential of science fiction and the way that it has essentially predicted the future over the years. It’s a fascinating listen and a fun video, so be sure to give it a watch below.
