History's Most Famous Radio Broadcast Exposed In This Rare 1975 ABC TV Docudrama On The 1938 ''War Of The Worlds'' Radio Broadcast PLUS The 1988 BBC Investigative Report Documentary On The Broadcast, ''Invasion From Mars!''! 2 Full Hours In The Highest DVD Quality MPG Video Format Of 9.1 MBPS On A USB Flash Drive! Contents: THE NIGHT THAT PANICKED AMERICA (1975, 1:32) An All-Star cast finely dramatizes the incredible events surrounding and resulting from the 1938 "Mischief Night" Broadcast By Orson Welles & The Mercury Theater On-The-Air of a dramatization of the H.G. Wells novel "The War of the Worlds". Coming upon the heels of the rumors of war that aired from Europe day after day during the Czechoslovakian crisis, this radio drama's tale of an invasion from Mars struck a chord in the conciousness of America that the mood the country resonated with, and it continues to reverberate to this day. It was the first example of what nowadays we call "reality" programming, and is also ironically history's most effective manipulation by a single broadcast of the perception of reality in the conciousness of the masses. The chaos and mayhem which resulted from so many listeners believing the dramatization to be real have become legend, and this docudrama sought to encapsulate that legend within this film with some of the best radio and television people in the busines - and if the voice of the announcer sounds distantly familiar to many of you newsreel fans, that's because the grand man cast in that role is none other than Westbrook Van Voorhis, the voice of THE MARCH OF TIME.

Secretary Tracy Brooks Swope ... Kelly Hanna Hertelendy ... Maid Robert Lussier ... Arnie Ed Bakey ... Vanderhoff INVASION FROM MARS! HOW ORSON WELLES PANICKED A NATION (1988, 22 Min.) An excellent BBC documentary that analyzes the reasons why this radio broadcast had the far-reaching effects that it did, with special attention given to the tradition of life on Mars, the powerful effect of radio news bulletins during the months prior to this broadcast as World War II loomed in Europe, and especially upon just what message Orson Welles really had in mind when he crafted this broadcast.
