The War of the Worlds (CD)
The BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation of HG Wells's famous story of the brutal Martian invasion of Earth.
When strange explosions are observed on the surface of Mars, excitement spreads among the scientific community. This enthralling story asks how mankind would fare if colonised by a technologically advanced invader. It stars Blake Ritson as Robert, with Samuel James as Billy and Carl Prekopp as the Curate.
Surrey astronomer Ogilvy invites his friend Robert to the observatory to witness the turbulence on the red planet. Ten days later, Ogilvy discovers a strange projectile on Horsell Common - with something inside. Robert rushes to view the craft, and is present when Martians emerge and turn their heat rays on the locals, who are waving white flags. It is the beginning of a merciless invasion... As Robert flees in search of safety, accompanied by a young curate, young soldier Billy experiences the chaos happening in London.
