When the made-for-TV movie The Day After aired on November 20, 1983, 100 million people gathered around their televisions to watch its vision of nuclear war and its aftermath. Through extensive archival footage and interviews, Television Event puts the film in context and documents both the challenges of its production and its place in Cold War political landscape.
