The Edge of Doom

This is a fascinating Radio Program- just what the BBC do best- about the moment in September 1983 when the world almost ended through nuclear war. Its worth listening- just to realise quite how scary the cold war was- and how little both sides understood the other and furthermore how that misunderstanding might well have propelled the world into utter catastrophe.

Thanks for the link. I was familiar with the incident but it's a story that deserves to be more widely known
