Encapsulated. Would you recommend this? why?

Yes. Classic writing, performances, iconic images, fantastic music. One of the greatest sci-fi/mystery shows ever.

Time and Space: When and where I first encountered it

Late 70s on first broadcast. About 14 yrs old.

Recollection and revelations

Iconic images - the man without a face, the nursey rhymme 'Ring a ring of roses', the song 'Pack up your troubles', the chilling resolution to Assignment 2 & possibly the BEST cliffhanger ending to any series EVER.
