Synopsis 1:
Exploration of the panic caused by the radio broadcast of H.G. Wells "War of the Worlds."
Synopsis 2:
In Oct, 1938, Orson Welles was already established as the boy wonder

of Broadway with his revolutionary productions of classic plays. He had moved

 into radio with a regular Sunday-night dramatic series, for which he was co-producer,

director, co-author, narrator and star. On Oct. 30, he presented an adaptation of

 H.G. Wells' science fiction tale "The War of the Worlds", which reported on an invasion

of the earth by monsters from Mars. Welles' technique called for a news-type presentation,

with simulated on-the-scene reports of the horrifying events from the point of landing

in New Jersey. His realism worked too well. Radio listeners by the millions thought they

were hearing an actual news broadcast. Their panic became one of the freak events

of American history. This one-hour play recreates the event, switching from scenes at

the radio studio prior to and during the broadcast, to simultaneous scenes of people

 in various walks of life in their homes, at a bar, at a police station,

in an automobile, in a newspaper office. [RF]
