The War of the Worlds

Just been listening to a documentary on the radio about the Orson Wells' broadcast of the "War of the Worlds" in 1938 and whether there was really the country wide panic that legend would have us believe. Rather good. The play itself is being broadcast tomorrow. Might try and listen.

It was presented by Sir Christopher Frayling, a British academic who has a great interest in Sergio Leone's films and is a great fan of Clint Eastwood. When Frayling received his knighthood he took a Latin phrase for his motto which roughly translates as "Go ahead, Punk, make my day" which I thought good fun .

You can listen to it when you have time.

It's about an hour long.

Thanks or that. BBC has a "Listen Again" feature which lets you listen anytime up to 7 days after the broadcast. Great stuff. really useful.
