Protect & Survive

Nuclear War....It's just a game?

Brighton is identified as one of the few locations in the UK that would not be a target in a nuclear war.  Imagine what life would be like in the city if the unthinkable happened.  The chaos, the anguish, the resilience…  What would you do to survive?  A series of 9 monologues takes you on a journey from the night before day zero to 1,000 years after the nuclear attack.  Inspired by the 1984 BBC film ” Threads”.

After Threads was shown, Neil Kinnock, then leader of the Opposition, wrote to the production team and said “The story must be told time and time again until the idea of using nuclear weapons is pushed into past history”.

Producer:  Simon Moorhead.
