American Blackout

I just learned today that the UK also hosted a similar show called Blackout-Channel 4


FIRST BROADCAST: 9PM Mon 9 September 2013C4 Duration: 01:11:49 Feature-length 'What-If' drama exploring the effects of a devastating cyber-attack on Britain's national electricity grid. Based on expert advice and meticulous research, Blackout combines real user-generated footage, alongside fictional scenes, CCTV archive and news reports to build a terrifyingly realistic account of Britain being plunged into darkness. The film plots the days following a nationwide power cut, as experienced by a cast of ordinary characters struggling to feed and protect themselves and their families. These eyewitness accounts reveal the disastrous impact of a prolonged blackout on hospitals, law and order, transport, and our food and water supplies. The programme casts members of the public from user-generated footage, weaving real-life archive with scripted drama to tell the story of how Britain could descend into chaos and anarchy without power. SERIES SYNOPSIS Fictional scenes, CCTV and user-generated footage combine to tell the story of what might happen if Britain experienced a nationwide power cut I tried to view it, but received the message that I couldn't due to the fact that I was not in their service area.
