Survival Under Atomic Attack, 1950

Discovered that the US produced their fair share of public information about Survival Under Atomic Attack, with information such as “your changes of surviving an atomic attack are better than you might have thought” and images like these!

Also there was the Raymond Brigs classic When the Wind Blows, based on / inspired by Protect and Survive which was beautifully animated in 1986 (featuring a David Bowie opening song!). Excerpt:
