    This looks decent, from the preview clips they're currently showing.

    Isn't this the follow-on series to that Smallpox Docu/Drama, which was on the BBC a year or so ago? Should be good, if they can keep the "what if" scenarios fresh.

    Gotta love these 'paranoia dramas'!

    Anyone remember that American TV Movie drama in the mid 80s?

    The one about the nuclear holocaust.
    The Day After with Jason Robards.

    It was really hyped up at the time as the 'most frightening piece of TV ever' !

    I'm sure there was a British one too?

    Garrett, Pauley...?

    Trivia - It was made by Nicholas Meyer of 'Wrath of Khan' fame.

    Just watched this "What If" programme. Not really THAT brilliant. Lots of uneccessary scaremongering & some it seemed a bit far fetched. I was under the impression that this was going to be covering disaster scenarios. Next week's is about equality.

    Back to watching "When Buildings Collapse" I suppose.

    Thought it was a great programme, I woulda liked to have watched it from the beginning though, I only caught the last 20 mins.

    I watched most of it - rest tonight

    Looks like the government ideas are damaging diversity of power station designs.

    We need nuclear, we need coal, we need some renewable*


    * tidal is not renewable - uses the momentum of the moon!
