Written and Directed by Peter Watkins
The War Game is a fictional, worst-case-scenario docu-drama about nuclear war and its aftermath in and around a typical English city. Although it won an Oscar for Best Documentary, it is fiction. It was intended as an hour-long program to air on BBC 1, but it was deemed too intense and violent to broadcast. It went to theatrical distribution as a feature film instead. Low-budget and shot on location, it strives for and achieves convincing and unflinching realism.

Thanks for this, it was excellent! Does anyone happen to have the DVD extra for this called 'The War Game - The Controversy' which discusses the banning of the film?

I'm wondering if there's anything new from Peter Watson?
Also I've been torrenting his "La Commune Paris 1871" and it continues to get hits. La Commune includes the documentary on Watson called "The Universal Clock."

You have to see Punishment Park if you have not yet.
It's a strange mix of early 70's styles and linguo and cruely/oddly actual politics and concerns.
Fascism in America.

I have seen all of Watkins that I know of. Strangely Punishment Park was one of the films I saw after the more minor ones such as his treatments of Strindberg and Edvard Munch. Watkins is well represented in our libraries. I made the request for La Commune after just seeing the info about Watkins' pop culture send-up called "Privilege" at scifi.com of all places. Reference was made to La Commune. So at Scifi.com, my Watkins experience started. I had seen the film Privilege many years ago and it stuck with me but not as a part of a larger body of work.
The War Game was packaged with "Colloden" which is also remarkable.
I encourage readers here to have their libraries support Watkins' work by getting the originals and the text pamphlets that go with them.
