Visual audiobook. Originally published in 1897, H.G. Wells' 'The War of the Worlds' was one of the earliest and best known novels depicting an alien invasion of Earth. Wells' most popular book inspired several unauthorised sequels, including Orson Welles' 1938 radio play, several movies, a television show, and many comic book and graphic novel adaptations. This programme includes dramatised narration by award-winning narrator Dick Hill, with on-screen displays of the text so the viewer can read along, or simply listen. Illustrations from the original serial publication by Warwick Goble and Alvin Correco enhance the visual presentation.
