Wells.» Then came the unmistakable voice of Orson Welles. He was interrupted by a news announcer reading a (2) bulletin, «Tonight’s weather…» Nothing to cause alarm at this stage. A few minutes after 8 o’clock a sombre voice interrupted the radio broadcast to warn Americans, «Ladies and gentlemen, I have a grave announcement to make…» The words that followed, beamed out in a programme networked across the USA, (3) remarkable scenes of panic. ?4] the announcement was that Martians had landed in North America The announcement was part of the radio play, but (5) so realistic and produced by such a genius of the theatre that most people who heard it took it for the fact.
