Wow, that was well done.

John Gosling has a WoTW page covering older movies, radio & books: http://www.war-ofthe-worlds.co.uk/index.html

including George Pal's proposed TV series (of which some test scenes exist): http://www.war-ofthe-worlds.co.uk/war_of_the_worlds_tv_pal.htm

Wow, really well done!

May have to have another think about post-WotW & WotW2 scenarios.

Footage comes from a full film, it was broadcast on CBC, 2 - 3 years back, DVR'd it and
watched it a couple of times. It has also been on BBC and US TV.
