But the day of the Lord will come

as a thief in the night,

in which the heavens shall pass away

with a great noise.

And the elements shall melt

with fervent heat.

The Earth also,

and the works that are therein,

shall be burned up.


The geiger counter here in the studio

reads 632 Renchens. That's six times more than enough to kill a man.

Down through the ages, the prophets

have forewarned us that in one day

thousands of years of

accomplishments could be

wiped away by the destructive hand of power.

Now that day has come.

All communication with the outside world has stopped,

just 15 hours after the first nuclear bomb fell on Formosa.

The whole world has been silenced,

annihilated by nuclear bombs.

Three billion people murdered by a thousand nuclear bombs and the lethal fallout.

Maybe there's no one left to hear my voice,

no living human being to record the end of the world.

Now, this is Ted Johnson for K.B.G.E. - Radio.

He didn't come, Dad. Larry didn't come.

He's lost. They're all lost.

Not a sign of life:

New York, Paris, Moscow... All's quiet now.

Look, Joanna! It's holding at 47!

Why, we may be saved! Just as I planned it.

I'm not sure I want to, Dad...

not without Larry.

I'm sorry, honey. I'm afraid he didn't make it.

But there's always hope. Come, let's go inside.

I planned it right, Joanna.

Our house out here, miles from any city. The cliffs.

The updrafts of air to fight back the radiation.

And provisions for the three of us for months.

There's only two of us now, Dad.


I couldn't very well order Larry to come out here and stay with us, even though you are engaged to him.

There's someone at the door, Dad. It's Larry, he's made it!

- Wait! Don't open that door until you're sure it's Larry!

- It is Larry! He's hurt!

- He'll contaminate us!

- Larry! Larry!

- Don't! Don't open that door. We can't take the chance!

- Let me go!

I've got to open that door!

Wait! Don't touch him!

He's red-hot with radioactivity!

It's not Larry!

- We've got to help him, whoever he is.

- Wait.

We'd better check the geiger counter.

740 Renchens? And he's still breathing!

Why, he should be dead!

But he's still breathing! Nobody can take that much and still live.

Don't touch him. He's my responsibility.

- Who are you?

- I'm Steve Marlin.

He's my brother.

Better keep away from him.


It's OK, it's OK.

God, he's still alive.

- Don't know why, but he's still alive!

- He must be dying.

The counter showed 740 Renchens.

Where are the bedrooms?

- Upstairs. Come with me.

- No.

They can't stay here!

- Yes, they can, Dad.

- But they're contaminated.

It's too late for them. But not us.

I'll get you some water and clean clothes.

- Get out of here or I'll kill you.

- Don't shoot! There's a girl out here.

Throw your weapon on the floor.

I warn you.

- This gun's loaded!

- OK, OK!

Stop it, Dad! Don't!

Move on into the room, here. Come in where I can see you.

- Are you all right?

- Yeah, I guess so.

- Is... is it OK if we stay?

- Of course you can't stay!

- I've got provisions for only three people.

- Mac, we're staying, so forget the sob story.

Please, mister, help us.

You can't stay here! It isn't the way I planned it. I have provisions for three people only.

I'm Joanna Ramsey. Please, bring your suitcase upstairs and I'll get you some fresh water.


I didn't mean nothin'.

I was just looking to see if anyone was alive in the house.

What's your name?

I'm Tim Henderson. I'm a rancher. I live up on the cliff.

- Sorry I roughed you up.
