Speaker information

Dr Joe Cain, UCL Science & Technology Studies

Exploring one of the greatest mysteries of the universe - whether we are alone - this classic adaptation of the HG Wells novel tells the story of a devastating alien attack on Earth. When all our weapions, including atomic bombs, cannot deter the invaders, how will the human race be saved/ At the height of the Cold War frenzy, this film has a lot more to it than just alien occupations. Film buff and science historian Dr Joe Cain (UCL Science & Technology Studies) will introduce the film. Following the film join us for a free glass of wine in a private view of the Musem. Part of the 'Natural Mystery Season' at the Grant Museum.
