  1. Speaking of The War Game, I read that cult filmmaker Alex Cox is a huge fan of the film and given the subjects he is interested in not only as a filmmaker, but in his political affiliation, it makes perfect sense. And yes, I have seen Threads. Quite a chilling film, but given the topic, that was the only way to possibly tell it. I remember that director Mick Jackson recalled in a interview that his previous BBC films were always met with praise from friends and workers, but in the case of Threads, it was anything but. Nevertheless, screenwriter Barry Hines received a letter of praise from then Labour Party leader Neil Kinnock (who served from 1983-1992). I got all of this information here in case you are interested. Anyway, thanks for dropping by 🙂
