I can't think of any television programmes that should never actually have been made. But I did find the television play THREADS by the BBC to be profoundly disturbing. The image that affected me most was of melting milk bottles on a doorstep and a man literally pissing himself with fright at the nuclear mushroom cloud that had just appeared above his home town. While the play was a worthy depiction of the potential horrors that it seemed could very well happen at the time of transmission, there was absolutely nothing positive that could be gained from watching this show, other than a realisation of how one's death in a nuclear war might look like. I guess the only positive thing it did instil in people was as a terrifying warning - and a call to spur people into action to prevent this nightmare from ever coming true.
