    (Syndicated, 1955 - 1957)
    [Ivan Tors, producer]

    [alternate Second Run Syndication
     title in the 1960's: "Beyond The Limits"]


Theme: "Science Fiction Theater Signature"

    [BMI spelling: "Science Fiction Theatre Signature"
          aka: "Science Fiction Theatre Theme";

          Ray Llewellyn was a pseudonym assigned to several music writers
          when they worked for hire on ZIV-TV, productions, with a buyout 
          contract since they would not collect royalties; Among them
          were ASCAP writers David Rose, Warren Barker, Jon Epstein
          and Raymond ("Ray") Bloch.
          
          Some lesser-known non-affiliated writers who may have worked
          under this arrangement (as seen in cues for "King of Diamonds")
          were Dick Bancroft, Bill Donati and Judith Pines.
          
          According to production music library researcher Paul Mandell, 
          this THEME was most likely composed by Ray Bloch (ASCAP), 
          since Bloch was given conducting credit on the label when 
          this piece appeared in the World Broadcasting System ("WBS")
          production music library.]
               
     Composer: credited to Ray Llewellyn (ASCAP/BMI)
              [pseudonym of ZIV/World Broadcasting System library writers],
               probably by Ray Bloch (ASCAP)
                          [professional name of Raymond Arthur Bloch]
