This Autumn Quest back with its Sci-Fi extravaganza. Including...

The Blob (30th October 4pm), The Blob follows the havoc wreaked on a small town by an alien creature with neither soul nor vertebrae, with Steve McQueen (The Great Escape) in his first major feature role, playing the young rebel teenager who tries to warn the town folk about the jellylike invader.

Earth Vs. The Flying Saucers (6th November 4pm), When the zombie like aliens arrive at the U.S. Army base in search of help for their dying planet, they try to make friendly contact with scientist Dr. Russ Marvin (Hugh Marlowe). But the military greets their fleet of saucers with gunfire, and the aliens are forced to retaliate. Can Marvin invent the ultimate weapon in a deadly game of beat-the-clock to save the human race? Hold on to your seat for an intergalactic flight!

20 Million Miles to Earth (13th November 4pm), On its way home from Venus, a U.S. Army rocket ship crashes into the sea of Sicily leaving Colonel Calder (William Hopper of Rebel Without a Cause) the sole survivor... or so it seems. A sealed container is also recovered from the wreck and, when a zoologist (The Mark of Zorro's Frank Puglia) and his granddaughter (Joan Taylor) open it, the gelatinous mass inside escapes. Overnight, it grows into a horrific monster that has doubled in size. In desperation, Calder calls in the Army to help fight the monster, but it will take more than man's weapons to fight the evil forces of the unknown and save the world from destruction

The Fly (27th November 4pm), A scientist develops "teleport" machines, which dissolve atoms in one place to recreate them in another, but when the scientist unwittingly shares the machine with a common housefly, he turns into a hideous hybrid of man and insect.

It Came From Beneath The Sea (4th December 4pm), The action is wet and wild in this sci-fi thriller that pits man - and woman - against a giant octopus. Submarine commander Pete Mathews (Kenneth Tobey) and scientists Lesley Joyce (Faith Domergue) and John Carter (Donald Curtis) battle an angry sea monster driven from the depths of the ocean by an H-bomb explosion
