Whilst flipping channels, came upon 'Dirty War' on HBO this past weekend. Synopsis from the PBS web site is below. If you don't receive HBO, looks like it will be on PBS, February 23. I thought it was extremely well done, although I missed the discussion following the movie. Highly recommended if you get the chance. If you've given any thought to what an actual CBRN attack would be like, especially in a major metropolitan area, this might scare you even more. How really ready are we for something like this?
"The first film, DIRTY WAR, tells the fictional story of a radiological "dirty bomb" attack on central London and debuts Monday, January 24 on HBO. DIRTY WAR is scheduled for Wednesday, February, 23 on PBS. Directed by Dan Percival who wrote the screenplay with Lizzie Mickery, this HBO Films/BBC Films production is based on extensive research by the BBC factual department and asks the questions: Are our emergency services fully prepared for a nuclear attack? How much does the public have a right to know?
The PBS presentation of DIRTY WAR in February will be followed by a half-hour panel discussion with experts in homeland security, emergency preparedness, nuclear weapons and terrorism."

HBO??? 75% BS on any subject (on a good day) add a subject where HBO's std political agenda can shine thru with PBS (and BBC) as partners. Yeah, a heavy dose of reality. Hyperventilating political fearmongering.
"Dirtybomb" is an overblown "threat" beloved by the left.
Anyone that fell for "War of the World" (the original) would fall for this as well.
