Publisher's Summary

When a Martian spacecraft lands on Woking Common, mankind is terrorised by aliens in tall, armoured capsules which stalk the countryside on three legs. The machines wreak havoc on London and the Southern Counties, and survivors are driven underground. Scientist John Nicholson (Paul Daneman) tells how he was plunged into a paralysing nightmare of stark terror, savage madness and utter destruction. Martin Jarvis, Peter Sallis, and Anthony Jackson also feature in this thrilling six-part dramatisation of HG Wells' book, first broadcast on Radio 4 in 1967.

Needs editing

This was clearly a serial, which is not the issue. The problem is that the producers left in all the lead in and credits for each installment, which becomes extremely annoying by the end of the recording.

The sounds effects were also a over the top for my taste.

I've heard other recordings of this story that I enjoyed more.
