War of the Worlds
Available on Prime Video
On Halloween Eve, 1938, a news bulletin reported that Martians had landed in a tiny New Jersey town. Although most listeners understood that the program was a radio drama, thousands of others plunged into panic, convinced that America was under a deadly attack. War of the Worlds explores how Orson Welles’ ingenious use of radio struck fear into an already anxious nation.
