The Dead Past (1956)
In the future, science research is directed by the government, including work on the chronoscope, or time-viewing machine. But when historian Arnold Potterly is refused permission to use the device to study ancient Carthage, he enlists the aid of young and dangerously curious physics instructor Jonas Foster to build a machine of his own. Dramatic, thought-provoking examination of the implications of time-viewing.
