The War of the Worlds: from H.G. Wells to Orson Welles, Jeff Wayne, and Steven Spielberg and beyond.

Peter Beck will deliver the Surrey Annual Heritage Lecture at Surrey History Centre on Saturday 17th September from 2 - 3.30pm.

Emeritus professor of History at Kingston University, Peter Beck has lived in Horsell for over 40 years. A published author, his latest book, The War of the Worlds: from H.G.Wells to Orson Welles, Jeff Wayne and Steven Spielberg and beyond, is due to be published in September 2016 by Bloomsbury. His Heritage Lecture by the same title explores Wells' most famous book and how since its publication it has developed a life of its own - from book to radio programme, film and stage production.
