From the Back Cover

Nuclear tests, conducted by the Americans and Russians, inadvertently knock the world off its axis. Weather patterns around the globe are disrupted but temperatures rise universally. Did the tests do more harm that was first thought?

This atmospheric story is told through the eyes of three people: Peter Stenning - the hard-drinking star reporter sliding to failure; scientific correspondent Bill Maguire, whose sleep-starved mind is galvanised when he sees the truth behind the upheaval which brings chaos to the world; and Jeannie Craig, Stenning's girlfriend, who innocently stumbles on the truth the government has been trying to suppress.

Dynamically filmed by Val Guest in 1961, "The Day The Earth Caught Fire" represents a landmark in British science fiction film making with its completely authentic Fleet Street background and performances to match is startling theme.
