Zero Hour can be found in these books:

Bradbury Stories: 100 of His Most Celebrated Tales
S is for Space
The Illustrated Man

Whenever you want to find a particular short story in a Bradbury book, head over to my website and look in the "Ray Bradbury Story Finder".

I have heard the X Minus One adaptation, and think it works quite well. However, it sort of eliminates some of the background science-fictional elements which help make the original short story seem more plausible (in a willing-suspension-of-disbelief manner).

You can call him "T" or you can call him "T743." Or you can call him "T743441544." Just don't call him "Mr. T743441544!"

Mister T743441544 was his father.

By the way, Is everyone here from the UK? Since I am an American, I hope the warm welcome holds.

Welcome from a fellow American!
Only a few Brits on board here actually.
Good ones, though!

(Believe me, too, Americans aren't as universally despised as the media would have us believe!)

I recently read an article in which statistical evidence proved your point. I can't remember where it was featured, though.
