The War Game

I believe this is a BBC film from 1965 about the effects of nuclear war that was suppressed from broadcast. It’s powerful stuff.

I found it fascinating, as I used to be really interested in American Cold War public information films, and the contrast between this and the whole ‘Duck & Cover’ malarky is stark to say the least. I can certainly appreciate why its broadcast was suppressed at the time!
