Synopsis

The controversial, widely-viewed dramatization of a nuclear catastrophe causing the destruction of Lawrence, Kansas, home of America's strategic missile arsenal which has become the focus of a superpower confrontation. A grim picture of rural life before, during and after a nuclear blast, with a huge cast headed by Jason Robards as a college professor, it stirred up a firestorm of debate (Was it Soviet propaganda? certain factions of ABC's stockholders wanted to know) and media attention, and provided ammunition for anti-nuclear peace groups in this country and in Europe. Its 12 Emmy Award nominations included Outstanding Drama Special, Outstanding Supporting Actor (John Lithgow), directing, writing, photography, art direction/set decoration, makeup, hairstyles, editing, special visual effects, film sound editing and sound mixing.
