Motoring in design

Nuclear vision

Remember The War Game? If you're too young to have been around when Peter Watkins's drama-documentary about a nuclear attack on Kent caused consternation when it was shown in cinemas in 1966 and on BBC television in 1985 (having originally been made for TV), you can see it now on video. It may not be a comfortable time to consider the nation's readiness (or lack of it) for such a crisis, but it could be instructive.

The video also includes Watkins's The Diary of an Unknown Soldier and The War Game - the controversy. Information: www.bfi.org.uk.
