Two powerful BBC-produced films by Peter Watkins about war and their consequences are collected here. Commissioned by the BBC in the mid-1960s to dramatize the effects of a nuclear attack on Great Britain, THE WAR GAME is a film of monumental devastation, which so shocked the heads of the agency that it was initially withheld from broadcast. CULLODEN is an intriguing restaging of the 1746 battle of Culloden–the last battle fought on British ground, in which "Bonnie Prince Charles" was defeated by the Royal Army of King George II–using amateur actors, and capturing how the bloody struggle might have looked to the nation if television had existed at the time.
