Tonight, for no reason in particular, I viewed the 1983 television movie “The Day After,” about the events of a fictional nuclear war.
I well remember viewing this film on television that very year, and I even remember being warned by my junior high school history teacher (whose name escapes me at the moment) about the graphic nature of the film.
I also remember stocking the “apple cellar” in the house I grew up in with water jugs, all with the approval of my father.
This video is part one of the ABCNews conversation, chaired by Ted Kopple, that followed the film. I think it is very interesting.
So … do you remember this movie?
