In the mid-1970s, the British government secretly made a series of information films to tell the public how to prepare for nuclear war. They would be shown on the nation's television sets if a nuclear exchange seemed unavoidable. Thankfully, they were never broadcast - and remained unseen and hidden away.
They include advice on:
What To Do When The Warning Sounds
Choosing Your Fall Out Room
Building A Radiation Resistant Inner Refuge
Essential Items For Your Fall Out Shelter
Water, Food And Sanitation
Emergency Radio Broadcasts
How To Dispose Of The Dead
This DVD also includes five bonus rare films showing Government preparations for nuclear war:
The Waking Point - A 1951 Crown Film Unit recruitment film for Civil Defence Volunteers.
Sound An Alarm - Made in 1971, this is a dramatic account of the work of the UK Warning and Monitoring Organisation, whose responsibilities included monitoring the spread of fall out after an atomic war.
The Warden & The Householder - This 1961 film vividly illustrates the duties of a civil defence warden in his local community when a nuclear attack is expected.
700 Practice Civil Defence - A unique film newsreel report on one of Britain's largest civil defence exercises, staged in Hackney, London, to test the preparedness of the Civil Defence Corps.
Doom Town - This Pathe news report takes you to 'Doom Town', a disused RAF base on the Cumberland coast designed to look like a city hit by a nuclear bomb. National servicemen are seen using the grim facility to 'learn rescue skills for the Atomic Age'.
