On October 30th 1938 Orson Wells' live broadcast of the HG Wells classic "War of the Worlds" shocked much of the country who believed the alien attack described in the radio play was real. October 30th 2008 at 8:00 pm, on the 70th anniversary of the original broadcast, WSKG-TV and Radio reenacted this classic broadcast live from our Vestal Studios.

Local Actors including Bill Gorman, and WSKG radio personalities perform the play from the original script, all sound effects and musical interludes were reenacted live to cue just as the original radio drama was performed and directed by Orson Well 70 years ago. The viewers see and hear exactly how the drama was constructed to a terrified America in 1938.
