Written by Barry Hines (Kes), 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. Based on actual government research into the effects of a nuclear bombing, Threads is as chilling as a nuclear winter.
