The Colonial Radio Theatre is proud to present this faithful, award winning adaptation of the greatest science fiction novel of all kind, The War of the Worlds. A capsule crashes to Earth in the heart of Victorian England, its planet of origin: Mars. What no-one can foresee is that this is only the beginning of a massive invasion that will see humanity tested as never before. Based on H.G. Wells’ groundbreaking novel, The War of the Worlds is as compelling a tale today as it was when the story was first published in 1898.
