For some years now the phrase 'Deep Freeze' has been creeping more and more into scientific discussion, and experiments have been carried out developing the possibilities of 'hibernation anaesthesia'. Tonight's exciting play by Evelyn Frazer tells the story of the first human 'guinea-pig' to undergo this experiment. Philip Gage, a young doctor closely concerned with tests that have so far been carried out only on animals, finds suddenly a good reason why he should be the first man to volunteer. But although he may temporarily have escaped from the world of the living, he cannot fully escape the world of reality which is slowly closing its net about him...
