A Deluge of Insight

By HAT

Verified Reviewer

Comments about PBS American Experience: Command & Control DVD:

This documentary is SUPERBLY and dramatically informative on the historic downsides and risks of nuclear weapons. It should be studied, reflected on, and discussed by all citizens.

The producers are to be highly commended for this public service, as is PBS for giving it broad exposure.

A Well Done, Edge of Your Seat Documentary

By ArkansasOne

from Arkansas

Verified Reviewer

Comments about PBS American Experience: Command & Control DVD:

Very well done and very interesting. Despite knowing the outcome, you are still on the edge of your seat waiting to see what happens next. Being an Arkansan, this documentary piece was especially appealing and was well put together with the right mix of historical footage, current interviews, and reenactment footage.

This Is Edge-of-Your-Seat Stuff

By Nick Exxon

from Jonesboro, AR

Verified Reviewer

Comments about PBS American Experience: Command & Control DVD:

I attended an advanced screening of this film at the Bee Branch, AR, high school, about a mile from where the missile silo stood and immediately knew I had to have the full 2-hour film.
While driving home I tried to imagine what the landscape would look like had that warhead detonated. I couldn't fathom it - then again I probably wouldn't be here had it exploded.
