An incredible insight into one of the most enduring sci-fi tales in history, Beyond the War of the Worlds looks deep into the anatomy of this terrifying story. In print worldwide for over a century, The War of the Worlds is HG Wells at his best. Beginning with its literary origins, we trace the path of this amazing story from riveting magazine serial through the panic broadcast of 1938, and then to major motion pictures. We uncover the long-forgotten 1968 broadcast that again drove thousands into the streets of Buffalo, New York; and gain exclusive access to a new animated feature film. Loaded with state-of-the-art special effects and stunning re-enactments, we revisit not only the famous but the obscure, including the radio broadcast in Ecuador that cost 20 people their lives.

This show combines the story of the book with the science of the day to give us a complete overview of the incredible phenomenon of this, the first tale of interplanetary invasion. Filled with vintage film clips and previously unseen interpretations of the Martians, this is the War of the Worlds you wont want to miss.
