"In an urban society, everything is connected"
Before I heard those words, I knew only joy, afterwards, I knew only fear, as this is the intro line to Threads, the BBCs attempt to brown the trews of an entire nation in the mid 80's.

I saw it for the first time in 2006, and spent the next fortnight Weeping and lying awake at night waiting for the flash, and this was 15 years after the cold war ended, had I watched it when it was released, with the reds at the Rhine, a cowboy filmstar in the whitehouse and a pasty-faced Bodiciea wannabe in number 10 I think I would have pooed my self to death.

You didn't need to watch it at the time to do that
You just needed the public information films about how to build a fallout shelter, and the news reports showing concentric ring distances from cities vs expected instant death / lingering death / possible survival percentages.

I lived in a lingering death zone under the heathrow flightpath - I remember listening to EVERY aircraft coming over wondering if this was the one.
