War of the Worlds 70th Anniversary broadcast

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).
