  • The War Game é um documentário britânico de 1965 que descreve os efeitos de uma guerra nuclear na Grã-Bretanha. Escrito, dirigido e produzido por Peter Watkins para a série da BBC ''The Wednesday Play''. Causou um enorme desconforto entre a rede de televisão e o governo britânico, sendo retirado de transmissão em 6 de Agosto de 1965 (o vigésimo aniversário do bombardeio de Hiroshima). A organização disse que "o efeito do filme foi julgado pela BBC como sendo de um impacto extremamente horrível para a trasmissão televisiva". No entanto, ele teve uma distribuição nos cinemas e ganhou o Oscar de Melhor Documentário em 1966. Mas permaneceu não transmitido na íntegra na televisão britânica até 1985.
