Peter Grave's character says "Two weeks ago I was selling plastic cups. Now I'm harnessing horses." (Horse whinnies.) "You're right, it's sure been a long time." Peter Graves starred as a horse rancher in the series Fury (1955). See more »
In the letter left by Barbara, she says protection from the solar flares is inherited via a gene which is "probably recessive". For children to inherit a genetic attribute possessed by only one parent, it would have to be dominant, not recessive. See more »
It was a Sunday in August. Mom, Dad, David, and I were on vacation digging for fossils in the high Sierras. Mom had to go back to LA that morning. We didn't know that two and a half hours later the world as we knew it would cease to exist.

I have been looking for the title of this movie for nearly 30 years! I saw it as a nine year old back when it first aired. I remember being creeped out to no end. In my teen years I got into scifi and somewhere in my head I always remembered watching this movie - perhaps one of the best apocalyptic films ever made, even if it was for TV. I couldn't remember the name, and no one I asked seemed to recall it - so went high school, college, even grad school... no one could help me find the title. Then, the Internet, a late night search on Google, and thanks to TV Tome and IMDb, I have the title. Now to get a copy! People have commented that it reminds them of the Trek episode... nah, this film is far more effective. It reminds me of The Quiet Earth, but the scenes where the clothes are found is eerie and outstretches TQE, imho.
Thank you all! My 30 year quest is over! Yippee!!!!!
