War Of Ohe Worlds, the Orson Welles radio broadcast
« on: September 23, 2010, 03:37:46 PM »

So I'm trying to my leaving cert history project on the effect of this broadcast on the inter-war people's paranoia and what not but I'm having trouble finding sources.
I know of 'Waging the war of the worlds - a history of the 1938 radio broadcast' (a book) but that's really all I can find.

If you know of any other books, newspaper articles or documentaries about it I'd appreciate it if you could tell me.

Thank you!

CeeGBee

I remember thinking this was great radio when I heard it first broadcast... 
I don't recall whether it has any citations you might follow.  At the
very least, it might suggest a question or a new perspective...

Is it bad that what she said made perfect sense to me?
