Protect and Survive was a public information series on civil defense produced by the British government during the early 1980s which was to use booklets, radio broadcasts, and 20 public information films to inform British citizens on how to protect themselves during a nuclear attack. It was originally intended only for release in the event of a crisis, and was not intended for general public consumption in peacetime. Though comparable with other emergency planning advice, the ‘Protect and Survive’ films were deeply fatalistic and disturbing and had a significant cultural impact during the 1980's.
