HG Wells: War with the World

Drama telling the story of the father of science fiction, HG Wells.

Wells earned global fame with his prophetic novels such as War of the Worlds and used his celebrity to meet the world's greatest leaders. His almost messianic ambition was to create a world state and avert humankind's headlong course towards self-destruction.

Wells was also infamous for his radical thinking on sexual freedom, but ultimately his belief in free love was to have catastrophic consequences.
