This film is based on a story by Raymond Briggs ,of "The Snowman" fame. This film is proof that cartoons aren't just for kids and it will disturb you deeply. Mr and Mrs Bloggs,voiced by John Mills and Peggy Ashcroft,are a sweet English couple, peacefully living out their remaining years in the country,whose lives are going to be shattered by nucleur war. The main premise of the film is that they really don't have a clue about what is going to happen.They get very little advice and what advice they do get is different.The government gives different advice from the local council. The film is full of reminiscences about WWII and how the couple believe that the government and emergency services will see them all right in the end. After the bomb hits it is sad to the see the couple slowly deteriorate but even to the very end still certain that the government and emergency service's will come to their rescue. Watch this film if you ever get a chance but don't watch it expecting a happy ending because the end will just wrench at your heart strings and leave you thinking "but for the grace of god go I"
