Protect and Survive: Britain’s Cold War Revealed

April 2019 sees the launch of our Cold War season, comprising a new exhibition ‘Protect and Survive: Britain’s Cold War Revealed’ and a varied programme of events that will offer a fascinating look into life in Britain during the turbulent Cold War era.

Mark Dunton, Contemporary Records Specialist at The National Archives and curator of the exhibition, said: ‘The pervasive threat of nuclear war impacted everyday life for millions of people and this thought-provoking exhibition will offer a unique insight into political and ideological tensions between the East and West.’
