Duck and Cover

This short film from 1951 is a countermeasure to the lethal effects of nuclear explosions, it is very effective in the event of a surprise nuclear attack. Especially..... during a nuclear attack of which the public has been given some warning, which would likely be just a few minutes, prior to the nuclear weapon arriving.

 IT IS AN OFFICIAL CIVIL DEFENSE FILM PRODUCED IN CO-OPERATION WITH THE FEDERAL CIVIL DEFENSE ADMINISTRATION IN CONSULTATION WITH THE SAFETY COMMISSION OF THE NATIONAL EDUCATION ASSOCIATION.

 Aimed at us children of the time, it is a grim reminder of the fear that gripped our nation in the height of the cold - cold war.
If you are too young to remember, please watch the film, and gain an insight into the fears that your parents or grandparents lived with....
 when they were young.
