Captain Fathom: The super powerful nuclear submarine Explorer is no ordinary craft - nor is her extraordinary skipper. "His name is known to few - Captain Fathom! Some think of him an oceanographer, a brilliant engineer, a chemist of genius, while others regard him as the foremost hydrographer, but all agree, Captain Fathom is first and foremost, a man of adventure!" This show was created by legendary writer Curt Siodmak, author of The Wolfman and Donovan's Brain. Stars Don Megowan; 1955.

Sea Divers: A beautiful blonde hires professional divers Tom and Mike to investigate her father's death aboard a a ship lost at sea. Stars Rhodes Reason, John Smith, Joyce Holden, Jeanne Vaughn; 1958.
