Somebody on Twitter mentioned being an admirer of Peter Watkins, who directed THE WAR GAME and several historical docs.  The name was new to me, but I was glad to find this on NWI.  THE WAR GAME is a fairly shocking pseudo documentary about the potential nuclear fallout in Britain after WWIII.  Of course I have no technical knowledge of such things, but THE WAR GAME feels entirely authentic and believable.  Scary shit.

  1. The War Game by Peter Watkins is the story of Nuclear attack on Britain banned by the BBC in 1965 until it was first shown on Wedesnday July 31st 1985 for the first time after 20 years later.
