Suppose, just suppose, that a man living in the year 1961 were able to travel all the way back to the year 1865, arriving mere hours before President Lincoln's assassination. Would he be able to do anything to stop that tragic event? That's an intriguing question posted by "Back There," a second-season episode of The Twilight Zone.
Now suppose, just suppose, that four men (your humble hosts David, Yavar, and Clark, plus returning special guest Tim Greiving) living in the year 2019 were able to take a detailed look at that episode, paying particular attention to its creative, suspenseful Jerry Goldsmith score. Would they make any compelling discoveries? Would their opinions of the episode and its music differ significantly? Most importantly, would you enjoy listening to it? These are the intriguing questions presented by this installment of The Goldsmith Odyssey. To find the answers, press play.
