1983: ABC Presents 'The Day After'
November 20, 2014  | By Christy Slewinski  | 1 comment
 
On this day in 1983, ABC presented The Day After, a miniseries depicting the aftermath of a fictional nuclear war on residents of the American midwest.

Seen by nearly 100 million people, the heavily-promoted drama — which starred Jason Robards, JoBeth Williams, Steve Guttenberg, John Cullum, John Lithgow and Amy Madigan — sparked national debate about the effects nuclear war would have on average Americans.

Having read about the worlds first nuclearwar,I don't feel that this film shows much of the horrors in the aftermath of a nuclear war.
