    “There was a turtle by the name of Bert
    And Bert the Turtle was very alert
    When danger threatened him he never got hurt
    He knew just what to do

    He’d duck and cover, duck and cover
    He’d hide his head and tail and four little feet
    He’d duck and cover!”



    Oh, I saw this video. It’s one of the most amusing things I have ever had the pleasure of watching. I especially like the part where the family having a picnic hides under their blanket when the bomb goes off. Yes, a blanket is the most effective way to protect oneself from an atomic bomb!

    :D I love it. Those early Cold War “educational” films are amazing!

    For more Cold War paranoia, I’d like to recommend CONELRAD — “The Golden Age of Homeland Security.”



    The March of the Defenders of Moscow is paticuarly good, as are some of the national anthems, especially the Soviet, Lithuanian and Kyrgyzstani ones. Invincible and Legendary is also epic, and in quite high quality (most are quite crackly)
