Orson Wells on his Mercury Theater Broadcast of H.G. Well's "War of the Worlds"

Mc_wow1Don't miss this re-enactment of the presentation and public reactions to the original Mercury Theater on the Air broadcast of H.G. Wells War of the Worlds, performed as a Halloween special on October 30, 1938. The live broadcast frightened many listeners into believing that an actual Martian invasion was in progress. This film also explores the new view of now emerging from the results of probes to the planets.

Orson Wells Documentary


I was 10 years old when Orson Welles "War of the Worlds" was broadcast. My mother heard the station break, so we knewthat planet Earth had not been invaded. ~Lainie~~Lainie~The StarGazer~My Astronomy website:

I think my query would be: What have we discovered from exhibitions, especially in this “new” economy? I listen to the factors for not attending: too far, can’t get away from the company, location, expenses, etc. But I have also heard that if it is a beneficial display, every attempt will be made to get that particular location.
