 In the 1950s nuclear attack from the Soviet Union seemed like a very real possibility to mainstream America. The government had to do something in order to prevent a panic. Thatís why they developed these incredible Cold War era films to tell the populace what to do to feel safe and survive a nuclear attack! If you are student of military history, propaganda or the Cold War you need to own the History Of Nuclear Defense - Surviving Atomic Attack 2-DVD set!

Cleanliness Will Protect You From Radiation!

As you go through this incredible 2-DVD set, you will be amazed at some of the advice the government provided to Americans. At one point the newsreel advises that if your house and yard are kept as clean as possible you will have a greater chance of surviving a nuclear blast!

What is fascinating about these films is how incredibly naÔve we all were about the dangers the world was facing in the event of an atomic strike! These films could never be produced today!



"Thanks again for many happy and informative hours on my computer. I will be telling all history buffs I know about your products!"

Fight The Future!

Screen Shot   Screen Shot   Screen Shot

One of the most dramatic tracks on this amazing set is one where people who live in cities are encouraged to stay put and fight for the American way of life. What is beautiful about these classic film clips is their hopeless optimism Ė that simply because we are American we will be able to survive any disaster our enemies throw at us!

You will be shocked and amazed at some of the government advice on these historic clips!

This Set Includes The Classic Burt The Turtle Film!

The "Burt The Turtle" film clip is one of the most famous of the Cold War era propaganda films. Using clever animation, Burt assures school children that they have nothing to fear from an atomic attack. You wonít believe your eyes!



"What a great deal with a professional seller!!!!!!!! Iím impressed and Iíll be back!!!!!! Great packing guys...everything arrived A OKAY!!!!!!!"
Gayle Ambler, Rochester, WA

The Best Offense Is A Good Defense:

We are all aware of the dangers of nuclear weapons and energy. A disaster could change the face of the world by destroying not only huge populations but also industry and agriculture. History of Nuclear Defense Ė Surviving Atomic Attack is a 2-DVD set that provides a closer look at the early concepts in civil defense. This vintage collection of civil defense educational films features some of the biological effects of high-energy radiations on plants and animal cells and ways for children to protect themselves in case an atomic attack.

Here is a complete track by track list of what you will see:

Our Cities Must Fight
The first track on the set is a civil defense film admonishing city dwellers to stay and fight in case of enemy invasion, rather than evacuate. It was filmed in New York, with shots of the Holland Tunnel and Penn Station. It suggests that you could help put out fires, clean up debris and aid your neighbor! It also says that radiation only stays in the air for a day or two. It also includes footage of devastated war torn European cities. This film is highly recommended!

Producer: Archer Productions, Inc.
Sponsor: U.S. Federal Civil Defense Administration
Year: 1951
Length: 00:08:56
Audio: Mono
Color: BLACK & WHITE

Our Cities Must Fight

Survival Under Atomic Attack
Next is a film that explains the dangers of the atomic bomb, the effects of radiation, and how to protect oneself if caught in the open or at home. Most of the advice would not be taken seriously today and would only help if you were 30 or 40 miles away from ground zero.

Producer: U.S. Office of Civil Defense
Sponsor: U.S. Office of Civil Defense
Year: 1951
Length: 00:08:46

Survival Under Atomic Attack

The News Magazine of the Screen
This track is a collection of newsreel stories reformatted for classroom presentation. In one, President Auriol of France visits the United States. Another takes you inside the Chalk River atomic plant. Later, General Douglas McArthur returns to the United States, visiting San Francisco and other cities. This film gives you a sense of the history that was going on while people were preparing for nuclear war.

The Atom and Biological Science
Moving on, this track describes some of the biological effects of high-energy radiation on plant and animal cells. It explains how radiation experiments are conducted and demonstrates some of the protective measures required. The film tells us of the many ways the atom is used to benefit agriculture, disease and other pesky problems. There are some really nice shots of people handling nuclear charged rods and doing experiments that seemed like a good idea then Ė including nuclear infused corn!

The Atom and Biological Science

Hanford Science Forum
The final track on the first DVD is a television program sponsored by General Electric for residents of the Richland, Washington area. There is an interview with Dr. Richard F. Foster, manager of the Aquatic Biology Division at the Hanford plutonium plant. Also featured is an interview with "science student of the week" Doyle Burke, senior at Columbia High School. The main point of the film is that radiation does not hurt plants or wildlife. Who knew?

Atomic Alert (Elementary version)
The second DVD kicks off with a frightening civil defense procedure film aimed at Cold War era elementary school students. We focus on Ted and his little sister Sue, who are home alone when the bomb falls. Sue calmly closes the Venetian blinds before they go crouch in the basement. We see lots of scenes of schoolchildren interrupting their play to huddle against buildings. "Strangers will understand," the narrator says, as a boy with nowhere to go enters a strange house. Nowadays, of course, children talking to strangers is considered more dangerous than atomic warfare.

Atomic Alert (Elementary version)

Duck and Cover
This is the one and only famous civil defense film for children where Burt the Turtle shows what to do in case of atomic attack! It features many similar scenes to the previous track Ė including lots of images of children huddling against the walls of their school. The turtle makes this by far the least scary of all of the films on the set.

The House in the Middle
Cleanliness is next to godliness! With this film, atomic tests at the Nevada Proving Grounds show the effects of a blast on well-kept homes, homes filled with trash and combustibles, and homes painted with reflective white paint. It asserts that cleanliness is an essential part of civil defense preparedness and that it increased survivability. It was selected for the 2002 National Film Registry of "artistically, culturally, and socially significant" films.

The House in the Middle

A Day Called X (Part I)
The last two tracks are a dramatized evacuation of Portland, Oregon after an atomic attack. Glenn Ford narrates this excellently paced film. It has well thought out tempo and narration. There is a sense of mounting tension as the evacuation gets underway. The only odd part is that even before the attack, the people look bored out of their mind!

Sponsor: N/A
Year: 1955

Color: BLACK & WHITE

A Day Called X (Part I)

A Day Called X (Part II)
