Day after Disaster on the History Channel – frightening and enlightening

Against a morning sky, a mushroom cloud spirals heavenward. A nuclear bomb has detonated in the heart of Washington D.C. incinerating 15,000 residents of the capital city in just 15 seconds.

For the first time on television, Department of Homeland Security reveals the most detailed and comprehensive plan to save America should terrorists go nuclear. (from the History Channel)
