A serial in six parts
Vincent Price as Curtis Lark
Peter Cushing as John Cornelius The curiosity of the inhabitants of the remote Scottish island of Lewigh is aroused when two strangers arrive for the funeral of the local doctor. The two men are no strangers to each other, nor were they to the late Dr Hugh Dexter. One is Professor Curtis Lark - a flamboyant American explorer, scientist and Nobel Prize winner whose research has been in the field of telepathy and telekinesis; the other is John Cornelius - the eminent British brain surgeon. What starts as a brief visit by two colleagues to honour an old friend quickly develops into a series of bizarre and frightening events which uncover the presence of forces unknown bent on world domination. 1: Island Genesis
