Just rewatched Threads

And it still scares me even after watching it 25 years after the fact, it still holds a sway over my childhood (I think I didnt sleep for a week after watching it first when I was 13) Even now long after the Cold War it still has an effect on me.

For those that dont know its about the effects of a nuclear exchange, the weeks leading upto the fateful exchange and then a breakdown of the effects upto 13 years after the exchange. Ending up showing the complete breakdown of society.

Its only been shown by the BBC twice (some say its been banned)

Re: Just rewatched Threads

This the one where those people are trapped in a train while the "exchange" goes off?

Re: Just rewatched Threads

Aussie, I either missed what your on about or you failed to make reference to it? Some documentary?

I've got the playlist with it all bookmarked, I'm going to watch it tomorrow night as it seems like very interesting viewing.

It was even scarier if you lived in Sheffield.

utterly awesome film, and quite effective in its message.
