Program Details*

Title

Welles Does Wells

Description

For Halloween 1938, Orson Welles' Mercury Theater broadcast a radio drama version of H. G. Wells War of the Worlds. It famously panicked listeners who tuned in late & missed the disclaimer about it only being a work of fiction. Imagine you live in a world without TV or the Internet and radio was your only source of current news.
