Host: Africa, lions, and the great modern safari explorers have been part of my life, in and out of films, or circus arenas, or libraries. Here in my work room, motion picture television machines and hot African veldt lands join and come alive. What was Popular Mechanics fancy when I was nine can be built today or written out in a few hours, yo be let loose from my typewriter as a story called "The Veldt."
George: How could I have been such a damned fool?
David: With so many servants, easy.
On the television screens in the Hadley home are episodes from previous episodes, including "Punishment Without Crime" and "Skeleton."
This episode is based on the Ray Bradbury short story "The Veldt" also known as "The World the Children Made". This story was first published in The Saturday Evening Post (September 23, 1950).
