Pamphlets similar to those prepared in briefly appeared in Peter Watkins ' controversial BBC docudrama The War Game , in a scene where they were distributed to people's homes. The Bulletins were not depicted in this controversial film. The fallout radiation advice in Protect and Survive was based on s fallout shelter experiments  summarised by Daniel T. This is considerably more penetrating than the mean 0. During the early s, the BBC and the Home Office produced a radio script advising the public of what to do in the event of nuclear attack.
This was eventually published in October on the BBC's website,  with the full correspondence made available to the public via The National Archives. In particular, it emphasised the need for citizens to remain in their homes,  and not to try to evacuate elsewhere. During the exchange of correspondence between the BBC and various government departments, several letters seem to suggest that a booklet for public consumption was already being discussed.
In a letter  from the Central Office of Information, dated 12 March , a request for information from The Home Office about a proposed booklet read as follows: . Meanwhile I should be grateful if you could let me have a copy of your revised advice to the householder. I will assume that this will form the text of the Official Announcement and that what Probert is discussing with your Information Division is the production of a booklet on public advice.
This was replied to on 15 March by the Home Office, clearly stating that such a booklet was being produced, and that they were also targeting the same information at television: . It seems likely a basic booklet will be produced Protect and Survive was formally published in May , but had come to the public's attention before that via a series of articles in The Times newspaper in January This was then followed by a Times leader on 19 January which noted that:  "In Britain, a Home Office booklet "Protect and Survive" remains unavailable.
It is not a secret pamphlet, and there is no mystery about it. It has been available to all local authorities and chief police and fire officers and to those who have attended courses at the Home Defence College at Easingwold. It has been shown to interested members of parliament and to journalists.

It has not been published, for the simple reason that it was produced for distribution at a time of grave international crisis when war seemed imminent, and it was calculated that it would have the greatest impact if distributed then. The Minister then went on to say the Home Office had received over letters from the public on civil defence.
It seems extremely likely [ citation needed ] that from pressure inside and outside Parliament, Protect and Survive was then published by the Government in May There is little to suggest that the Government ever intended the pamphlet to be made available for general sale had it not attracted this much attention. Organizations such as the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament protested that the pamphlet, by popularising the idea that a nuclear war could be survived, made such a war more likely. The protest organisations published and sold large numbers of copies of the pamphlet, considering that widespread reading of the pamphlet could only discredit the government's policy.
The purpose of the Protect and Survive scheme is to provide members of the British public with instructions via print and broadcast media on how to protect themselves and survive a nuclear attack. The scheme is not intended to be made public during peacetime and only if a nuclear attack has been deemed likely by the Government during any international crisis, that the information would be disseminated via print and broadcast media.
All this information detailed a series of steps recommended to be undertaken by civilians of the UK to improve their chances of survival in the event of nuclear attack. The primary instructional booklet under the same name was prepared in and released in May during peacetime, the booklet was priced at 50 pence, but would be widely distributed freely to all households in the United Kingdom if the risk of nuclear attack increased.
