Introduction: Threads

This screening will be introduced by Bruce Kent, peace campaigner and prominent member of the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament.Written by Barry (Kes) Hines, Threads is the story of a working class family in Sheffield with a new baby on the way and everything to look forward to. And then the USSR invades Iran, NATO condemns the action, and the Soviets plant a couple of missiles on the steel city. Chaos sets in and survival is desperate. Based on actual government research into the effects of a nuclear bombing, THREADS is as chilling as a nuclear winter.
