“Our actual broadcasting time, from the first mention of the meteorites to the fall of New York City, was less than 40 minutes. During that time men traveled long distances, large bodies of troops were mobilized, Cabinet meetings were held, savage battles fought on land and in the air. And millions of people accepted it — emotionally if not logically.”

i can just imagine how things would be if the same was attempted today, what with advanced cgi and so on.
