On October 30, 1938, Orson Welles and his theatre group performed a radio play based on a science fiction novel: The War of the Worlds by H.G. Wells. The 60-minute broadcast consisted in a series of news bulletins which announced that a meteorite had crashed on a New Jersey farm and New York was under attack by Martians, creating panick among the listeners. The programme’s news-bulletin format was highly criticized but the episode launched Orson Welles to fame.
