The story, which might have been an Outer Limits episode or some other TV show, or a short story, opens with a man from the middle dark ages finding himself walking in the European countryside and suddenly confronted by a metal monster (automobile). He is taken to a home where he is fed and interrogated. He remembers being in his fields and suddenly transported to a modern day countryside. The story ends when he is told nobody can help him see his family again,and he hangs himself. He is awestruck by modern life, but makes a comment saying "at least wine hasn't changed".

    One Twilight Zone episode that has some similarities is "A Hundred Yards Over the Rim"? Check out en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Hundred_Yards_Over_the_Rim – jim Mar 19 '17 at 0:07
  • Thanks,that was one of my favorite episodes of TZ,but it isn't what I was after. – Old Mike Mar 19 '17 at 23:34

This was an episode of not-very-good tv show called Psi Factor. I just dug around and the title of the episode appears to be Man Out of Time: http://www.tvguide.com/tvshows/psi-factor-chronicles-of-the-paranormal/episode-3558581/203892/

Looks like it's up on YouTube. As I said, the series was not great, sort of a facsimile of X-Files. But I agree this episode was somewhat moving.

  • That is the story for sure,and I thank you for finding it! I definitely don't remember seeing it as a PSI episode,and I am sure I read the story somewhere. The PSI show credits don't seem to show where the story came from,though. Again,I really appreciate your efforts! Very moving episode! – Old Mike Mar 21 '17 at 21:57
