      For the apocalypse, pre, during and after, then Threads.

      I forgot about Threads, although I actually found my DVD yesterday in a clear out. It's easily one of the most realistic and depressing films about an apocalypse, it makes The Road look cheery.

      Parents of fans of fireman sam will enjoy this review:

      Fireman Sam: the worst children’s programme ever? | Dean Burnett

      If "28 Days later" counts as apocalyptic film, it would get my vote. Loved the empty London parts. The carton promotional posters around its original relase was pretty cool too (and quite different to other film material).

      PS - i can't get "we don't need another hero" out of my head, thanks to Ed !

      It might be related to my age (1972 vintage), but the early / mid 80's nuclear war films and series really made an impact on me. I don't think i've seen them since but should revisit them. Threads and The Day After. Let's not forget "when the wind blows", which had a somewhat different tone to the snowman !

      All in the context of living through the cold war - so maybe not as scary today.

      I always thought The Day After was too American soap opera to be genuinely upsetting but Threads, The War Game and When the Wind Blows all gave me nightmares as a teenager in the 80s. Mind you, we got some great songs out it too!
