Apocalypse Missing In Action

Still ununnavialable on DVD despite a planned release date last year. Andrew Marshall and David Renwick‘s dark TV comedy Whoops apocalypse from 1982 (forget the dire film remake, it was nowhere near as cutting). The world is probably too sensitive to its content. The recently departed Barry Morse played an incompetent US president at the mercy of manipulation by zealous religious advisors against a backdrop of the then cold war and growing (and today very relevant) scenario of tensions in the middle east. The only unrealistic element to the countdown to the apocalypse is the election of a left wing government in 80’s Britain.
