While mainstream cinema was relatively slow to adopt time travel as a theme, it became a regular feature of 60s science fiction and fantasy TV shows such as "Doctor Who", "The Twilight Zone", "The Outer Limits" and "Star Trek". Offscreen presents two classic time-travelling episodes from the original series of "Star Trek". In "All Our Yesterdays", Captain Kirk, Spock and Dr. McCoy find themselves in a library full of portals to a doomed planet’s past, and in "The City on the Edge of Forever," (officially scripted by Harlan Ellison but rewritten by Gene Roddenberry, and often cited as one of the best "Star Trek" episodes of all time), Kirk and Spock travel back to Depression-era New York City, with heartbreaking results.
