"Journey Into the Unknown" was a 90-minute anthology series that ran one season on ABC back in 1969. The memorable opening started with eerie music playing over empty rides in motion at an amusement park. This show, while not as spectacular as "The Twilight Zone" or "The Outer Limits," IMHO was much better than Spielberg's later fantasy-based series "Amazing Stories" and deserves a release.

Man From Atlantis
Get Smart (ninties second series 8 or so episodes)

I also have a few more somewhere

When Journey Into the Unknown was shown in Britain the episodes were only 50 minutes in length. It was a Hammer series. I would certainly like to see it released on DVD

For those folks posting shows from very recently, at least you had opportunity to record them yourself, had you been so inclined. I learned, oh around 1981, that if there was something airing that you think you might want to keep, record it and then you at least have it. It's mind boggling to me that 27 years later and people still have shows they like that they don't record and then they complain when they either don't get put on DVD or they come out with edits and music changes. And people continue to be surprised.

I should have been more specific and said PRIOR TO THE TAPING ERA.
