Rod Serling on how imagination turns science fiction into fact

Rod Serling, the creator of the US television series The Twilight Zone (1959-64) firmly believed in the connection between smart science fiction, imagination and progress. In this 1963 interview, newly and inventively animated for PBS’s Blank on Blank series, Serling discusses how scientific discoveries are driven by the same youthful impulse to bring the unreal to life as his own work, which creates ‘impossibilities’ through storytelling.

Producer: David Gerlach, Amy Drozdowska
