Summary: A cinema recruitment trailer for Civil Defence.
Description: The film reminds the audience of the bombing by massed raids in the last war (using much film from the time) and points out that there is no reason why it should not happen again, except that this time "it only takes one aircraft to drop an atom bomb". The commentary repeatedly points up the difference between the trained person in control and the helpless mob at the mercy of the situation. The audience is urged to join the Civil Defence organisation upon leaving the cinema.
