Following on from my previous well-received project, this new Twilight Zone edit turns classic Trek's 'And The Children Shall Lead' into an original Rod Serling episode.

Editing Details:

Original footage edited down to 30 mins with a post-titles teaser and 1 x commercial break.

Converted entirely into monochrome.

Original TZ season one opening titles in place of the original.

End credits are left in tact, but with TZ season three closing music, and sped up to fit in with the TZ music.

Two of Serling's narrations used for the opening and closing, the latter is a voiceover only.

The original close of Act II is the commercial break.

Cuts and Additions:

Alterations to original episode:

Removed all exterior space shots of the Enterprise.

Removed Kirk's two Captain's Logs.

Removed the landing party beaming down to Triacus.

Removed the Kirk/Spock cave sequence and subsequent references to it.

Removed the ice cream/busy bees scene.

Trimmed the Professor's Log playbacks.

Trimmed the conference in Kirk's quarters.

The original end of Act II is the halfway commercial break, albeit truncated to just have the two shots of Gorgan.

Removed the two Kirk/Spock corridor scenes which sandwich their encounter with the affected Scotty.

Removed Chekhov's attempted arrest of Kirk.

Removed Kirk's 'Gorgan' references.

Trimmed the playback footage of the families on Triacus.

Additional Twilight Zone material:

A trimmed version of Serling's opening intro for 'The Little People' cuts in after the 'Ring-a-ring-a-roses' circle the children dance with.

The end narration for 'The Fear' closes the episode.
