Also in related British apocalypse news:
- BBC Radio 4 did a truly excellent program back in December about Britain’s nuclear deterrent and the mechanisms of command and control. You can’t listen to the program on their Web site anymore, and I can’t seem to find any of their supporting documents, but some kind soul has preserved the MP3 of the program off-site; I can’t recommend it highly enough.
- This guy’s YouTube channel is a fantastic collection of British cold war films, and includes all of Protect and Survive, the Civil Defence Information Bulletins referenced above, and a few other things, including this semi-satirical look at PIFs featuring none other than Jeremy Clarkson (and a very bad laugh track).
Some days I truly love the Internet.
