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

Well, that was the most grim and frighteningly urgent thing I've ever seen. A disturbing glance at an alternate history that reflects both a real, lived history (Hiroshima, Nagasaki) and a foreboding future.

Gritty, stark, and dark. Realistic for the day. Excellent effects by the limited British (no offense of course).
