“After The Big One: Nuclear War On The Prairies”

Produced in 1983 for Canadian television, “After The Big One: Nuclear War On The Prairies” looks at the consequences of a nuclear attack for the Canadian Prairies. The Prairies are singled out because of their proximity to huge stockpiles of intercontinental ballistic missiles located in North Dakota. Scenes include a visit to a missile base and to an emergency government bunker in Manitoba. A doctor, a farmer and a civil defence coordinator provide different perspectives on nuclear war. Although the film focuses on one region, it provides a model for people everywhere who would like to know more about their own situation but don’t know what questions to ask.

    Also remember a 1978 PBS show ‘In the Event of Catastrophe’

    Ahh yes, because the communists running the telecommunications and media companies controlling the narrative would never lie to their captive audience about health and security issues now would they?
