This is a  documentary short about the nuclear war script written by the BBC and other UK governmental agencies that was to be read in event of a nuclear war.

Oh, and it’s a comedy.


In 1973, the threat of nuclear attack was ever-present. The UK government needed to prepare its citizens for nuclear war, but how? A secret government committee was tasked to write a script for a future filled with widespread panic, death, the destruction of the BBC… and correct grammar.
