Product Description
Product Details


In 1938, Orson Welles 'Mercury Theatre company produced a radio adaptation of HG Wells' Classic Sci-Fi novel 'The War of the Worlds'. The show was broadcast as though it was a real news event, with martians invading the eastern United States. It caused panic in many cities. This fascinating documentary charts the events of that broadcast evening and it's after-effects and gives a biography of Orson Welles and his Career. Also includes are interviews with commentators and footage of current events of the time that created the atmosphere of fear and unease felt by many in the USA in the year before war broke out in Europe. The Day that panicked America is a truly remarkable look at one of broadcasting's most defining moments. The Power of the media was never so clearly shown.
