154 - The War Of The Worlds Radio Play
On October 30, 1938 Orson Welles and The Mercury Theatre broadcast one of the most famous pieces of radio in history. An adaptation of the H.G Wells' science fiction classic 'The War Of The Worlds,' performed as a news broadcast. Thousands across the USA panicked as they mistook it for a real bulletin... But is that the whole story? This is the first episode of Blockbuster-Tober.
