TITLE: SPECIAL BULLETIN
DIRECTOR: Edward Zwick
Anti-nuclear scientists place a homemade nuke on a tugboat in Charleston, South Carolina. They take a news crew hostage and go live. This realistic, made-for-TV movie was originally presented as a fake breaking news story on NBC. Don't touch that dial or you'll miss a humdinger of an ending.
ATOMIC HYGIENE: Cold War Short Films
This infamous red scare film was put together from television newsreel footage of the May 1960 House Committee on Un-American Activities (HUAC) hearings in San Francisco, its attendant student protests, and the riotous police action (fire hoses used on City Hall protesters) that followed.
