Hi, does anyone know of any place to source a copy of "On The Eighth Day" BBC documentary. It was a documentary about the effects of nuclear winter and was shown the day after Threads in the UK. Here is what I know. Broadcast BBC2 in UK on 24 September 1984, a day after Threads was first broadcast on BBC1. It is episode 119 of the BBC's Natural World series which started in 1983! Its US TV Premiere was on WTBS from 8PM EDT to 905PM EDT and again 27 January 1985 435PM EDT to 340PM EDT. Based on this I am estimating it is about 50minutes in length which sounds right for a BBC documentary in 1984. No media release anywhere. Even checked You Tube and found nothing relating directly to it. I checked TorrentReactor.net and some TV links I have bookmarked but nothing came up. BBC Programmes website also has no entry but that is far from a complete database so far.

Me and a friend of mine in the States would like to see it but cant seem to find it available anywhere even to view online.

Anyone know?

This was not made by BBC but by Thames Television. I know this because we sold this on behalf of Thames Television until we lost the contract. We ( Concord Media) have other DVDs on this subject.

You're thinking of an entirely different set of programmes made in 1970. As initial poster said, the BBC programme is about nuclear winter, and was broadcast in 1984

Yes you are quite right. Our film was called 'And on the Eighth Day' and was a pioneer film on ecology.

We tracked it down on VHS and got it uploaded to YouTube.
