A special daytime event on the 20th of Feb at The Scottish Parliament featuring a screening of Peter Watkin’s "The War Game" (1966 Academy Award winning TV documentary, a graphic and disturbing portrayal of a nuclear attack on Kent on film which was banned by the BBC). Though over 50 years old and shot in black and white, 'The War Game' remains a key film in galvanising debate on vital political and social questions of our time. Professor John Cook, who is the leading expert on Watkin’s work teaches media at Glasgow Caledonian University. He uncovered evidence of the BBC collaborating with the UK Government cabinet office to ban the film from TV. Professor Cook will introduce the film and join a panel that will include students, SCND Chair Lynn Jamieson and the event host, Bill Kidd MSP.

MSPs and representatives of civil society will be guests at the event . If you would like to join them, please intimate interest by sending an email to scnd@banthebomb before 12th Feb.
