(Though The War Game has something similar at one point with looters being shot, and a similarly downer ending. It's interesting how in 20 years between the two productions it went from a nuclear war being like a really bad version of The Blitz to being the end of civilization as we know it. I guess that expectations shifted as we became better informed - as well as nuclear arms proliferation).

Cheery tonight, eh?
All good clean fun
