War of the Worlds

This is just incredible.  I though maybe it was an new adaptation of War of the Worlds (a very obvious influence) but it appears to be part of a new Docufiction for the the History channel called the Great Martian War. Not sure what I think of the programme from the clips I saw on the History Chanals website, it’s a bit weird using original war footage with real men fighting a real war, laced fake interviews about a Martian invasion that never happened without appearing to credit H.G. Wells… Hmmm.

With powerful and detailed First World War parallels, The Great Martian War fuses sci-fi fantasy with specialist factual history to explore the real-world tragedies and unique horror of World War One.

…I think I prefer actual old fashioned factual documentaries.

But… wow. This is exactly how I imagined H.G Wells’ aliens.

Thanks for sharing Steve ‘Sketch’ Vallino.
