THE HOLE IN THE GROUND (SHORT)


1962 DIRECTOR: David Cobham The Hole In The Ground is a colour docudrama, the nearest that I've seen to the chilling 1984 docudrama, Threads, which focuses on the role and procedures of the Royal Observer Corps (British) in the event of a nuclear attack. It is a bit dry, stiff upper lipped and reeks of… Continue reading THE HOLE IN THE GROUND (SHORT)
