Today on Far Future Horizons we continue to commemorate the 78th Anniversary of Orson Welles. War of the Worlds radio broadcast with the SciFi Channel’s Seeing Ear Theatre production of Orson the Alien! The Untold Story Behind The War of the Worlds starring Star Trek’s Walter Koenig (Chekov). This radio play was originally webcasted live from New York's Museum of TV & Radio on October 30th, 1998. The script was written by Terry Bisson, Brian Smith and George Zarr.







Orson the Alien pays homage to the wicked imagination of Welles and company with an alternate history of the series of events that transpired that magical night so long ago. Seeing Ear Theatre asks, what if intelligences greater than our own were indeed listening that night, from beyond our solar system? And, what if they too believed the broadcasts to be authentic, what if they were good and honest aliens, what if they felt obliged to travel to Earth to help save us from the dreaded Martians? What then, Orson?




Now, without further ado we present for your hearing pleasure Orson the Alien! The Untold Story Behind The War of the Worlds.




Orson the Alien! The Untold Story Behind The War of the Worlds  is available from Amazon Booksellers
