(1926-1973) UK scriptwriter and credited co-author of City of the Hidden Eyes (1960) with J L Morrissey, based on Levene's eight-part BBC Radio serial from 27 April 1959, in which the surface world is threatened by Monsters who occupy a City far Underground; it is likely that adaptation of script to novel was entirely by Morrissey. Levene wrote a great deal for Radio and Television, including scripts for The Invisible Man (1958-1959) and The Avengers (1961-1969) – for which he wrote nineteen scripts, including the three Cybernauts episodes beginning with "The Cybernauts" (14 October 1965).
