Jeff Wayne's Musical Version of The War of the Worlds is a 1978 concept album by 
Jeff Wayne, retelling the story of The War of the Worlds by H. G. Wells. Its format 
is progressive rock and string orchestra, using narration and leitmotifs to carry 
the story via rhyming melodic lyrics that express the feelings of the various 
characters. The two-disc album remains a bestseller, having sold millions of 
records around the world, and is the 38th best selling album of all time in the 
UK with sales of 2,561,286 by 2009. It has since spawned multiple versions of 
the album, video games, DVDs, and live tours.
In a prologue, the Journalist prepares to recount the experiences he had in the 
late 19th century. He notes that few had even considered the possibility of alien 
life, but that they were observed across space by advanced beings who regarded 
Earth with envy.

In the Journalist's story, several masses of green gas erupt from Mars. For the 
next ten nights, they continue towards Earth. Ogilvy the astronomer assures the 
Journalist there is no danger, convinced that no life could exist on Mars. The 
first missile lands in Horsell Common. In a sand pit, Ogilvy discovers a glowing 
cylinder whose top begins unscrewing. A crowd gathers, drawn by the spectacle. 
The cylinder lid falls off, and a Martian creature emerges. Several men move 
closer, but are incinerated by the Heat-Ray–an advanced Martian weapon. The 
Journalist flees with the crowd. Hammering sounds are heard from the pit: the 
Martians are constructing machines. A company of soldiers is deployed at the common.
Later, an Artilleryman arrives at the Journalist's house, telling him that his 
comrades were killed by Martian fighting-machines–tripod vehicles armed with Heat-
Rays. They set off for London–the Journalist to ensure his lover Carrie is safe, 
and the Artilleryman to report to headquarters–but are separated when caught in the 
crossfire between soldiers and fighting-machines. Three days later, the Journalist 
arrives at Carrie's house to find it empty. Depressed, he attempts to escape London 
by boat. He sees that Carrie has boarded a steamer ship, but the gangplank is 
raised before they can reach each other. Fighting-machines approach the steamer, 
but the ironclad Thunder Child attacks them. The steamer escapes, but Thunder Child 
is destroyed–humanity's last hope of victory is lost.

The Earth Under the Martians

The next day, the wandering Journalist finds that red weed–the vegetation giving 
Mars its colour–has taken root on Earth, rapidly overgrowing the landscape. In a 
churchyard, he encounters the Parson Nathaniel and his wife Beth. Delirious, 
Nathaniel believes the invaders are not Martian creatures, but demons arising from 
human evil. The trio take refuge in a nearby cottage, where they are trapped by 
black smoke–a Martian chemical weapon. Nathaniel despairs, blaming himself for the 
invasion. Beth attempts to restore his faith in humanity. A Martian cylinder lands 
on the cottage, killing Beth. The Martians outside construct a handling-machine: 
a squat spider-like vehicle used to collect humans. After nine days hiding in the 
ruined cottage, the Journalist and Nathaniel see the Martians "feeding"–harvesting 
human blood and injecting it into their own veins. Nathaniel resolves to confront 
the "demons", believing himself chosen to destroy them with his prayers and holy 
cross. The Journalist knocks him unconscious to protect them both. Hearing the 
noise, the Martians send a mechanical claw to explore the cottage. It drags away 
Nathaniel's unconscious body, but the Journalist evades detection. Later, finding 
that the Martians have disappeared, the Journalist leaves. On his way back to 
London, he encounters the Artilleryman once more. The Artilleryman shares his plan 
to start a utopian civilisation, located underground, where humans can evade the 
Martians, and ultimately strike back with reverse-engineered Martian technology. 
The Journalist leaves, realising the Artilleryman's ambitions far exceed his 
abilities. He reaches London, finding it desolate and empty. Driven to the point 
of suicide by his own loneliness and the city's silence, the Journalist surrenders 
to the Martians, but finds the fighting-machines lifeless. The Martians were killed 
by Earth's bacteria, to which they had no immunity: from the moment they arrived 
and fed, they were doomed.

In an epilogue, the Journalist concludes his story: humanity recovered from the 
invasion, and he was reunited with Carrie. The Journalist wonders if Earth is safe,
or if the Martians have learned from their failure and are preparing a second 
invasion. In the modern day, a NASA mission to Mars encounters trouble when the 
control centre loses contact with the craft. The controller sights a green flare 
erupting from Mars's surface.
