David Helwig episodes are terrific
If you want to really get the Twilight Zone feel of this show, you can do no better than to start with the two episodes written by Canadian author, poet, journalist, David Helwig.
My personal favorite is episode #2, The Disappearance. There is a sweet, innocent feel to the show, which slowly pulls you deeper like quicksand, perfectly counterpoised by musical interludes and seemingly random incidents.
#27, the Unliving, is also creepy and hair-raising.
Just love Vanishing Point!

VP_860113_66_Moms_Home_Cooking is only a partial show.

Thanks for uploading these! Just a few more mislabeled episodes:
1988-11-21 Dead Astronaut
1988-11-28 Cloud Sculptors of Coral B
1988-05-16 Somebody Talking to You
1988-05-13 Rubber Ball
Unfortunately, this seems to be the case everywhere else I've looked online. If someone has the correct files, would love it if you could post. Thanks!

No "The Vanishing Point"? I almost never found this. Who in the world expects the show here only to be called VPoint? Grr. Lucky for me there's the Google.

I have two episodes in mp3 form (transferred from cassette) that are not here: Alligators in the Lake and Journey to a Secret Sea.) I just got my account and maybe latter I will upload them.
Also missing and I don't have copies of are:
The Doctor's Casebook
The Black Persian
Tales of the Near Future
The Man Who Thought Ian Tyson was God
The Word for World Is Forest
and an expansion of Curse of the Unnamed Planet called Adventures on the Unnamed Planet (3 more episodes).
That being said; this is a good collection other than the errors other people have listed.
I have just upload the two episodes I mentioned.
You can get them here:

Some audio too much bass
not enough bandwidth? maybe copied from cassette? most of the audio is great though.
Some reviewers missing some episodes, there's another website that has the ones listed, Im not affiliated with it in any way shape nor form, I don't think ethically I can list the actual url but it goes by a phrase "Your source for dumb stuff" and they have an old time radio section. Golden Triangle episode is there, so are some others.

Vanishing Point errors
vp841123-09 - The Golden Triangle
vp841130-10 - The Silerian Test
Are the same files They are both The Golden Triangle.
vp841207-11 - Teenage Catalogue Model is
vp-841130-10 - The Silerian test.
As far as I can tell, there is no vp841207-11 in this folder. Don't know where it is. I will have to try other sites to see if I can find it.

One of the Best
Vanishing Point is great. The scripts and production values are consistently superb. I'm glad I found it.

ABSOLUTELY, hands down, the best.
I love OTR and have been collecting shows since I was a child. I have heard thousands of shows in my time, and of all them, "Vanishing Point" is hands down the very best. Second would be "Nightfall", but it wouldn't be a close race. "Vanishing point" is truly a mindf*&ker. One episode, "Snow Shadow Area", is simply the most frightening thing I have ever heard, and I played it for friends to make sure my assessment was right- all were astounded, and none of them are OTR types.
Having listened to about half of them at this point, I think the episode i mentioned above is the very best, but many others are unsettling and quite strange. Not all are the very best, but worth a listen.

While not every episode is frightening, this series contains some of the most unsettling radio plays I've ever listened to. Nor is every episode a horror story; there are some clever satirical episodes as well.
While I'm very glad to see these posted here, as I've apparently lost my other set of episodes, there are some mistakes in the naming of some of the files. For example, episode 11, Teenage Catalogue Model is missing, and the episode that is labeled "VP_841207_11_Teenage_Catalogue_Model" is another episode altogether. Hopefully someone (like the great OTR Researchers Group, whose Vanishing Point log has many episodes I've never encountered) can share a more complete set of these with the world.
