In the ten years that Alfred Hitchcock Presents and The Alfred Hitchcock Hour were on the air, seven episodes either were based on stories by Ray Bradbury or featured teleplays by Bradbury based on stories by other authors. The first of these was “Shopping for Death,” broadcast during the half-hour show’s first season on January 29, 1956, and based on Bradbury’s story of the same name that had first appeared in the Canadian magazine, MacLean’s, on June 1, 1954.
