Fans celebrate War of the Worlds radio debut

Seventy five years after its first radio broadcast, War of the Worlds anniversary is marked with a recreation from fans.

Seventy-five years ago the actor and director Orson Welles put on a radio adaptation of the classic novel – The War of The Worlds. It has lived on in radio lore as one of the scariest plays ever broadcast in the United States.

To celebrate its anniversary, people in Grover’s Mill, New Jersey, took to the airwaves and re-created the play.

Al Jazeera’s John Terrett reports from New Jersey.
