It's perfectly crafted, totally human and so completely harrowing you'll think that you'll probably never want to watch it again.
Threads first aired on BBC2 on 23 September, 1984, and had much the same - albeit vicarious - impact of instant and lasting trauma on its millions of viewers (6.9 million, to be precise) as a megatonne bomb hitting a major city.
[S]eared a black furrow across my soul as a teen that has never healed... it still plagues the dim recesses of my imagination.
In this VERY graphic dramatisation of a city during the lead up to nuclear war and the following fall-out, we're shown that things would be completely horrible.
Got to ask...did anyone think it would be sunshine, peaches and ice-cream all round?
brutal stuff!!! very realistic, this is graphic and morbid..ultimately depressing..but movie production values are high and not much is held back...not exactly entertaining but is gripping drama if apocalypse genre is your thing...
