AFTER ARMAGEDDON, a History Channel 2-hour special documentary on life after a virulent flu pandemic, aired earlier and will air again tonight and several times this week. Here's the schedule.
I was one of the "experts" for the show...I got a call just before Christmas from the Times of London, who'd read the transcript...the reporter said I must be, "The most depressing man in America." Well, okay! Here's the scenario set-up, from RAWtv, the Brit production company who put the show together:
After Armageddon, the feature length drama documentary from RAW is being shown on The History Channel USA on Tuesday January 5th at 8pm and again on Wednesday January 6th at 12pm.
AFTER ARMAGEDDON tells the story of what happens to North America after it is devastated by a major flu pandemic, an unprecedented disaster which leaves 90% of the population dead. Based on hard scientific research and cutting edge disaster planning, this film shows just how close we are to the collapse of society as we know it.
Well, yee-ha, if that's the scenario you give me you gotta expect something less than sunshine and lollipops! I said, in essence, the survivors would be fighting over the scraps of the scraps. Sorry...
