Directed by Mick Jackson

In September 1984, it was aired on the BBC and shocked tens of millions of UK viewers. Four months later, it was broadcast in America on TBS and became the most watched basic cable program in history. After more than three decades, it remains one of the most acclaimed and shattering made-for- television movies of all time. Reece Dinsdale (Coronation Street), David Brierly (Doctor Who) and Karen Meagher (in a stunning debut performance) star in this “graphic and haunting” (People Magazine) docudrama about the effects of a nuclear attack on the working-class city of Sheffield, England as the fabric of society unravels.

This legendarily haunting docudrama depicts the effects of a nuclear attack on the working-class city of Sheffield, England.

Cast: Karen Meagher, Reece Dinsdale, David Brierly

I saw this at 11 years old when it had originally aired. The Cold War with Russia seemed that much more terrifying after seeing this. I had nightmares for weeks. It’s slow and a bit boring, but worth a watch.

Was pretty effective I’d say, makes the day after seem like the sound of music.

Absolutely grisly. One of the bleakest films ever made...if not the bleakest.
