The Invisible Man
S1E1.1
Secret Experiment

Saturday, 13th June 1959

First broadcast on ATV London 14 September 1958.

Scientist Peter Brady, working to achieve invisibilty using light refraction, accidentally makes himself invisible. His bosses lock him up for safekeeping, but Brady escapes. A fellow scientist he tells about the experiment steals his papers, whereupon Brady beats the hell out of him. The bosses apologize and he goes back to work.

Inauspicious beginning to the short-lived series comes across as more of a children's show, and one for especially dim ones at that. Patterson's voice isn't the right choice, and the plot and characters are just too simplistic to garner much interest.
