Twilight Zone Third Season

"What you are about to watch is a nightmare. It is not meant to be prophetic, it need not happen, it's the fervent and urgent prayer of all men of good will that it shall never happen. But in this place, in this moment, it does happen. This is the Twilight Zone."

During a party for Dr. Stockton, the radio announces that UFOs are headed southeast and that everyone should head for their shelters. The Doc, his wife and son barricade themselves in their shelter, but their neighbors are unprepared and beg to be let in. Doc refuses saying there is only food and air for three. The neighbors find a pipe and beat the door down. Just then, the radio announces that the UFOs were really just satellites. The neighbors apologize but Doc knows that the experience has destroyed them all.

"No moral, no message, no prophetic tract, just a simple statement of fact: for civilization to survive, the human race has to remain civilized. Tonight's very small exercise in logic from the Twilight Zone."
