"The story must be told time and time again until the idea of using nuclear weapons is pushed into past history"

TBC Audio original drama presents Protect & Survive.

In 1984, amid fears of a nuclear war, the BBC produced and broadcast “Threads”, the story of a nuclear strike on the UK.  

Now, in 2021, a series of 9 monologues takes you on a terrifying journey from the day before to 1,000 years after such a nuclear attack. 

On government lists, Brighton is identified as one of the five locations in the UK that would not be a target in a nuclear war with the USSR. 

The city may survive  but, imagine what life would be like in Brighton if this happened.The chaos, the anguish, the resilience...
