  1. Okey guys,

    Years ago (as a kid) I remember a film, think it might have been about a submarine, basically it was set during the cold war (cerainly had nukes), all the world was dead except for the crew of this sub, they were following a radar blip, that they thought might be other humans, but when they get there, its just a coke can blowing round in a bin lid. Did I dream this or is there such a film? I thought it might have been Fail Safe with Henry Fonda, but its not......

    Can anyone help?
  2. On the Beach
  3. Sounds almost vaguely like a version of Neville Shute's 'On The Beach'. You can google all that yourself to see if it's right or not.
  4. On the Beach 1959 from the book by Nevil Shute
  5. "On the Beach" based on the Nevil Shute novel


    Edited to say "must type faster" :D
  6. Sounds like on the beach I wonder if anyone else thinks the same?

  7. Something to do with sand I think.
  8. Def " On the Beach "
  9. defo sounds like on the beach. it featured a post nuclear world where only the southern hemisphere was safe. a rogue transmitter left running in the north was sending gobbledy gook RF, which they went to find. Good flick. :wink:
