This week we tackle a truly harrowing film. Arguably director Peter Watkins' finest work, 1966's 'The War Game'. An anti-nuclear war film that takes Watkins' pseudo-documentary style to its pinnacle to tell the story of what a Britain during a nuclear war might look like. Suppressed by the BBC and government the film still won an Oscar. We are joined by author and host of the Atomic Hobo podcast, Julie McDowall to discuss this very important film.
