In the 1960s, the Cold War was at its height. Under the threat of nuclear attack at virtually any moment, Britain prepared itself as best it could for the devastating effects of war. The four rare films featured on this DVD vividly capture the preparations made for nuclear war by the authorities, and the advice given to the public on surviving both the bombs and the irradiated fallout that would inevitably follow...

Seven Nuclear Defence Warnings
A chilling collection of Home Office films from 1964 that would have been broadcast to the public in the event of escalating hostilities between the Superpowers. They provide essential information of public survival during an attack and in the grim aftermath...

The Warden & His Duties And Training
This 1961 Home Office film examines the demands made on the Civil Defence Warden should a nuclear war break out, and his role in helping a stricken and traumatised public.

Care Of The Homeless
Made in 1965, this dramatised film shows the preparation of 'rest centres' in Bath and how they would have to cope with evacuees from Bristol after the city received a direct nuclear strike.

Sound An Alarm 2
This 1962 dramatised film, made in colour, looks at the service provided by the UK Warning & Monitoring Organisation in the build up to, during, and in the aftermath of a nuclear attack in Britain.
