The War of the Worlds
Although this famous story was originally set in London, England, Orson Welles' infamous radio broadcast relocated the tale of an unexpected invasion from Mars to upstate New York. Broadcast as if a genuine news story was breaking during a broadcast of dance music, many listeners believed the events being described were true and a minor panic ensued.
The tale has had many adaptations, there is of course a classic movie
and a dual album CD with music and a narration by Richard Burton is
periodically re-released and always sells out!
