Premise:
The 'Unknown' referred to in the title was the Human Mind.
Episodes dealt with normal people in everyday situations that
found themselves having to experience something a bit out of
the normal.

Do you remember the creepy introduction, its haunting music and the night
images of the deserted fairground?
'Journey to the Unknown' theme music by Harry Robinson

Each episode featured one American guest star in the lead role.
The episodes were aired on ABC in the US prior to ITV in the UK.
