    Thanks for the latest contributions. Yes, One Step Beyond is firmly on my international anthologies list. If there's enough demand for it, I could paste it?

    'Mystery & Imagination' (or rather the surviving episodes) is available from Network Dvd as are 'Beasts' and 'Thriller','Shades of Darkness' is available on Region 1 via Amazon (it is short of three episodes but these are 'obtainable' via the collector circles).

    I'd imagine that many of the titles mentioned are obtainable via collectors circles-there are a few titles that forum members are remembering from the actual airing but I'd hazard a guess that most of the offerings have been viewed in the last twenty years-I'd search the 'looking for a tv programme' thread if I was you.

    Good call! Only one episode that I can think off can be classed as a 'supernatural' themed episode but it's been a while since I've watched the series-I may dig out my copy next week.

    Morning guys - thanks for your input here. probably would be better to put a request in anouther,more relative section.
    i noticed a dvd copy of " out of this world" on something called i offer ? but have not used that before,so am a little wary ?
    someone may have taped origanal broadcasts when vhs came out ?
    there seems little horror/supernatural based tv programs on now ( i did get a copy of bbc's "supernatural" from the mid '70s at one point )
    cheers

    I thought Supernatural was pretty bad.
    Great acting but slow boring obscure stories.

    There was a 1972 Amicus film of that name starring Joan Collins and Peter Cushing.Great film.

    Also an American series which ran from 1989 to '96.Very gory black comedy tales and would recommend.

    HTV's 1980 series Border Country adapted Arthur Machen's The Shining Pyramid, which would definitely qualify. Not sure about the content of any other editions though. See:

    Are you people aware of The Sole Survivor mystery?

    There are a number of people, and they appear to be exclusively British, who insist they saw a movie just like Sole Survivor (the one starring William Shatner and Richard Basehart) except it was black and white and the ending is they are ghosts, but they didn't know it. They are very insistent although there is no theatrical movie prior to Sole Survivor like that and none of them can identify any of the actors.

    Theories to explain this are:

    There was an edited European theatrical movie of Sole Survivor to explain the discrepancies in the plot (not very convincing when you take the theory apart}.

    It is a hoax (although a lot of people seems to be perpetuating it)

    It is an urban legend movie.

    It looks like someone who spent several hours on it yesterday found the solution. Those crazy Brits confused it with Armchair Mystery Theater's The Last Reunion, a 1965 remake of a teleplay from 1955. Not an exact match but the ending makes it plausible some people are mixing the two together in their memory.

    I've been involved in this, on this and other boards- I have named both SOLE SURVIVOR and THE LAST REUNION in other people's name that film threads, but also asked, early on as a member here, about a similar film I'd seen just as Will describes above. Thing is, we had a colour TV in the living room from 1977 on, it was in the afternoon, and the film in question definitely had the look of a 40sset black and white war movie about it. And I remember my Mum going "Oh,right, so they were all ghosts, then..." as the camera panned back to reveal skeletons in a cockpit.

    Still, it apparently doesn't exist!!! Bizarre....

    Season 1 of the original b&W Twilight Zone has an episode titled King 9 Will Not Return starring Robert Cummings which is the same basic plot as Sole Survivor.
    On the subject of Horror/supernatural anthologies there is an American anthology set in the old west titled Grim Prairie Tales.

    In your original post, you wrote:
    "I'm compiling a comprehensive list of supernatural/horror/sci-fi anthologies from all over the world"
    Did you mean "from all over the world", but in English only, or in any language, from any country?

    Many horror/supernatural/sci-fi anthologies were made for French TV, but it's probably out of the subject?
    (among them, "Histoires extraordinaires" (1981), six episodes, all from Edgar Allan Poe's stories).

    If your research is limited to English-speaking TV anthologies, don't forget:

    13 DEMON STREET (Sweden/USA, 1959/60), hosted by Lon Chaney, Jr. (it was shot in English, and aired on Swedish TV in this language, with Swedish subtitles)

    EDGAR ALLAN POE'S TALES OF MYSTERY AND IMAGINATION (South Africa / Croatia / UK, 1995, 13 episodes - but only 11 stories, as episodes 11 and 12 were "The Masque of the Red Death" in two parts, and episode 13 was a biographical portrait of Edgar Allan Poe). I have all the episodes, but... in Italian.

    Another one to add to the list

    Strange Experiences (1955-56)

    http://uk.imdb.com/title/tt1900584/epcast


    The Liars (Granada 1966)

    may also qualify?

    I'd be interested to hear of any french supernatural tv anthologies-do you have any links?
