The overall sound quality, I felt, was as if the organ and the orchestra were both playing from behind a curtain or a veil of some kind.  The concluding measures of the Final were simply played too fast--it was rushed, and it sounded rushed.  I have done some broadcasting work myself in the past, so I know about time constraints and such, but I feel that to rush the conclusion of a work as glorious as this is simply inexcusable!

This is one instance where Malloy and Reed could have used a walkie-talkie to summon backup.  Nowadays, most if not all officers have portable radios as part of their personal equipment.

It should be pointed out that nuclear science as we know it today was still in its infancy when this show was filmed in the 1950's.  Based on the experience gained from the tragic disasters at Three Mile Island, Chernobyl, and Fukushima, the kind of problem depicted in this episode is totally unrealistic.  Even if such a scenario were possible, it would almost certainly require either deliberate sabotage (by tampering with the fuel slugs), the use of an unknown radioisotope, or possibly by tampering with the control rods (the latte being by far the least likely to work).  Also, the budget for each episode of this series was quite low by modern standards, so the producers strove to make the plot as believable as they could while still keeping the expense involved to a minimum

It would be SO nice if you could upload the rest of the Space Ghost series in HD!

Now if someone could just upload the final episode of the 1988 series remake--"The Sands of Seth"!  I believe the rest of the 1988 episodes have already been uploaded.

It would be nice if you could upload an episode called, I believe, "Hit-and-Run," from the mid-to-late 1960's.  In the introduction, Sergeant Friday gives an explanation of what happens during the first minute of a head-on collision, based on studies at Cornell University.  The explanation is a classic in its own right, and so is the episode, especially the conclusion and the epilogue.  Thanks for uploading this one, though, and please keep up the good work!

Does anyone know who the narrator was?  The voice sounds strikingly like that of the late Vic Perrin, who was the "control voice" of the 1960's TV series, "The Outer Limits," as well as supplying voiceovers for several of Hanna-Barbera's classic cartoon series, most notably of the character Dr. Zin in "Jonny Quest."

Phelps's last line, "I think we've just taken a brick out of the Berlin Wall," proved to be prophetic, for it was just under 2 years later that the Berlin Wall was formally torn down once and for all, and the reunification of Germany proceeded apace!

I've seen several other versions of this video on YouTube, and most of them are about an hour in length.  Why is this version so much longer, especially since the narrator specifically states that it is an hour long?  Is this a revised edition or something?

I had never noticed the length issue, but you make a good point. This version of the video came directly from the DVD which I purchased from Amazon.com. It is the Director's Cut of the film, which is probably why there is more material, and there is also a lengthy "extras" section on the DVD with interesting analysis of the Pharaoh of the Exodus, Timeline of the Jews from Joseph the Jesus, Cecil B. DeMille's "Ten Commandments", and other topics. Worth the investment: http://www.amazon.com/The-Exodus-Revealed-Searching-Crossing/dp/B00005AUE2.

Has anyone noticed how often Craig tape recorders, with their characteristic "T-bar" control, were used in the original MI series?  They were extremely popular during the 1960's and 1970's. (I owned one of their cassette models myself during those years!) Today, however, although Craig Electronics is still very much alive and well, the "T-bar" recorders, along with virtually all other personal tape recorders, have long since been discontinued--and no, they did NOT "self-destruct in five seconds"!
