Episode Summary

EDIT
Muckraking TV journalist Donald Rivers, host of 'The Whole Truth,' has the show of a lifetime: rock solid proof that the government and private defense contractors have been engaging in secret genetic cloning. But powerful forces are working to stop him, forces that will stop at nothing to keep their secrets. He goes on-air live, in a locked studio, accompanied only by a skeleton crew and Dr. Avery Strong, River's eyewitness to the history of deception and dark science. As he presents his evidence -- all gleaned from earlier episodes of The Outer Limits -- the powerful begin to interfere. First, they try to shut down his transmitter. Then, the network's parent company disavows the show. When thugs with guns knock down the studio door, Rivers continues the show on the fly, transmitting live from the back of a broadcast news van. But a van can only drive for so long. When it stops, will the truth, even The Whole Truth, be enough to protect Rivers, Strong and the crew?moreless
