Summary The night of October 30, 1938, began as any other peaceful Sunday evening. Then, at 8:15 pm, there was a report on the radio that martians had landed in New Jersey. Almost instantly, people listening responded to the shocking news, with reports of panic coming in from across the country. With the CBS radio broadcast as its narrative spine, this film will examine the elements that created the biggest mass hysteria event in US history, including our long time fascination with life on Mars and the emergence of radio as a powerful new medium. (From the US) (Documentary) G CC.
