The Real War of the Worlds

Friday 9 February 2007 20:30-20:50 (Radio 3)

Robbie Meredith investigates the radical political ideas of HG Wells. Feminists, socialists and dictators alike warmed to Wells's ideas of globalisation and a world state, elitist multi-culturalism and eugenics. Former leader of the Labour party Michael Foot and author Fay Weldon reveal why Wells remains a hero and why his ideas are still relevant today.
