Television EventBy Jeff Daniels
A portrayal of the dramatic climax of the Cold War through the lens of a commercial television network, as it narrowly succeeds in producing the most watched, most controversial made-for-TV movie, Nicholas Meyer’s The Day After (1983), a fictional account of the effects of a nuclear attack on the USA. It reveals how a commercial broadcaster made an emotional connection with an audience of over 100 million and forced an urgent conversation with the US President who then changed his rhetoric on a “winnable” nuclear war.
