"The Day After:" Thirty Years Later

Day After burn makeup smaller

Thirty years ago, millions of Americans watched the city of Lawrence suffer the effects of a fictitious nuclear war. Next week marks the 30th anniversary of the broadcast of the made-for-TV movie, The Day After, largely set and filmed in Lawrence and the surrounding area. On the next KPR Presents, we look back on that television event, visit with director Nicholas Meyer, and hear from many area residents who played extras in the film.
