70 years ago this evening Orson Welles’ Mercury Theatre on the Air broadcast what would become one of the most infamous radio plays in history. Adapted by and written by Howard Koch, and famously directed by Orson Welles, it was originally broadcast on 30th of October 1938 and caused great controversy at the time (not to mention covering up the actual invasion by the red lectroids).
