The Old Man in the Cave - Recap

<-- Previous EpisodeNext Episode -->
A group of survivors from a nuclear bomb have been getting advice on their everyday actions from an unseen "Old Man" in a cave. Only Mr. Goldsmith has had any contact with him. He goes to him everyday and brings back advice to the masses. A group of soldiers drive in one day and take over. Major French asks why they are not eating from this pile of canned foods. Mr. Goldsmith tells them that the old man says they are contaminated by radiation. Major French thinks the people are fools listening to a man that no one has ever seen, meanwhile starving to death while a pile of food awaits. The townspeople agree with the soldier and storm the cave to see this old man themselves. They are shocked to find out he is just a computer, and not a man at all. Enraged, the people destroy the computer. They return to town and feast upon the food. They soon regret this cause the food was indeed contaminated and they all die, except Mr. Goldsmith.
