Summary
Few films have caused such controversy as Peter Watkins' The war game, a drama documentary made for BBC TV in 1965 about a 'limited' nuclear attack on Kent, England. Blending fiction and fact to create a moving and startling vision of the personal as well as the public consequences of such an attack, Watkins exposes the inadequacy of the nation's Civil Defence programme and questions the philosophy of the nuclear deterrent. Conspicuously absent from TV screens until 1985, it was mainly through cinema release in 1966 - and its Academy Award for Best Documentray Feature in 1967 - that it gained a loyal and vociferous following providing a sharp focus for CND and other peace movements.DVD
