    There was also THIS, but who knows, the way things are going, it may soon be relevant.

    The campaign was famously voiced by the actor Patrick Allen. Here he is, causing more mayhem in his helicopter than The Bomb ever could!

    Not an advert,but did anyone see The War Game? Made by the BBC in the mid 60s, it imagined the result of a nuking of Rochester. Judged too beastly, it wasn't televised until the 80s, but I saw it at school in the late 60s.Scared me sh1tless.

    Yes. Saw it in the early 1980s, made all the more scary for being narrated by
    Michael Aspel!

    I remember watching it at school as well. All the more horrific at the time as I knew Rochester and Chatham well and recognised many of the places where it was filmed.

    On reflection, though, nuking Rochester now might have some benefits.

    Lads, does anyone remember a 1970/80s brewery advert, possibly welsh, man goes to walk the dog every evening but is sneaking into the pub. Then he gets ill and wifey brings the dog for the walk and gets dragged to the pub ????
