Storyline

This is a documentary covering the subject of what can happen shortly after a disaster strikes, starting from seconds, to minutes, to hours, days, weeks, months, years and so on. This covers governmental, civil, military, judicial, financial, medical, manufacturing and shipping, commercial, and other aspects of support and recovery. The main scenario is an EMP blast that knocks out the power grid and also a nuclear blast on Washington D.C. and the surrounding area. What areas would be affected, what the immediate effects are and the systems in place that would work to mitigate any damage and speed recovery and thwart a future attack. It is not sensationalized, just folks in leadership positions planning for "what if?" possible scenarios. Definitely worth a viewing, then you can do your part in preparing yourself and family for the possibilities in case of a disaster.

Another repetitive History Channel documentary
16 October 2010 | by EradanSee all my reviews

I cannot recommend "Day After Disaster" to anyone. The same 5-6 minutes of CGI are used over and over again. This of course is a syndrome viewers familiar with History Channel productions have seen before. There are also long stretches of talking heads delivering the usual stale, Homeland Security talking points. Anyone who has followed mainstream news coverage of the Forever War has heard those before too. At 100 minutes, the whole thing is about twice as long as it needs to be.

DAD is really not worth your time, but if you think you want to see it, then be smart. Save your money and rent it from Netflix. That way the only thing you'll have wasted will be one hour of your time....
