It began as a sort-of revival of pioneering sci-fi program, Dimension X and the first fifteen episodes were remakes from that series. The remainder of the episodes were originals from staff writers Ernest Kinoy and George Lefferts as well as their adaptations of new works by the likes of A. A. PhelpsJr., Alan Nourse, Algis Budrys, Arthur Sellings, Clifford Simak, Donald A. Wollheim, Evelyn Smith, F. L. Wallace, Finn O'Donovan, Fletcher Pratt, Frank M. Robinson, Frank Quattrochi, Frederic Brown, Frederick Pohl, Fritz Leiber, Gordon R. Dickson, Graham Doar, H. Beam Piper, H. L. Gold, Isaac Asimov, J. T. McIntosh, Jack McKenty, James Blish, James E. Gunn, James E. Gunn, James H. Schmitz, Katherine MacLean, L. Sprague de Camp, Mark Clifton, Milton Lesser, Murray Leinster, Ned Lang, Peter Phillips, Phillip K. Dick, Poul Anderson, Ray Bradbury, Richard Maples, Richard Wilson, Robert Bloch, Robert Heinlein, Robert Sheckley, Robert Silverberg, Ross Rockland, Stephen Arr, Stephen Vincent Benet, Steven Tall, Theodore sturgeon, Tom Goodwin, Vaughn Shelton, William Tenn, and Wyman Guin.
Each episode began with announcer (variously Ben Grauer, Bill Rippe, Don Pardo, Fred Collins, Jack Costello, Kenneth Banghart and Roger Tuttle) intoning:
"Countdown for blastoff... X minus five, four, three, two, X minus one... Fire! From the far horizons of the unknown come transcribed tales of new dimensions in time and space. These are stories of the future; adventures in which you'll live in a million could-be years on a thousand may-be worlds. The National Broadcasting Company, in cooperation with Street and Smith, publishers of Astounding Science Fiction presents... X Minus One."

During the run of this program there were several shows that were re-runs and appear in the master list of episodes ( http://www.otrsite.com/logs/logx1001.htm ) more than once. Other sellers of this series have used this to bulk up their episode list. In some cases you'll even hear the announcer will say it's a repeat. The duplicates that often appear are:

"Saucer Of Lonliness" - Episodes 83 and 110
"The Old Die Rich" - Episodes 60 and 111
"The Martian Death March" - Episodes 17 and 75
"The Castaways" - Episodes 18 and 77
"Hello, Tomorrow" - Episodes 23 and 40
"The Wonderfull Dolls" - Episodes 7 and 34

In the case of "Tunnel Under The World" (Episodes 42 and 66), and "The Haunted Corpse" (Episodes 104 and 121), they re-made the episodes with a different cast for some reason. They were left in for completion.
