The Day The Earth Caught Fire

Sizzling apocalyptic drama

With his marriage ending acrimoniously and his love affair with the bottle intensifying, Peter Stenning uncovers the mother of all stories – nuclear testing has dislodged the earth from its axis, pushing it towards the sun. Domestic concerns take a back seat as the former golden boy of the newsroom fights to fend off the imminent apocalypse. A BAFTA-winning screenplay and strong lead performances propel this bleak vision of a society under threat.
