Event description

Description

In this workshop we will consider the origins, nature, reception and fate of the 1980s UK government civil defence campagn "Protect and Survive". We will discuss the following issues:-

  1. What were the origins of Protect and Survive? How did the original plans arise and how were they realised? How exactly did it arrive in the public domain?

  2. What was the nature of Protect and Survive? Was it a campaign / public information ‘package’? How would it have been used in practice? What types of media would it have used?

  3. How was Protect and Survive recieved? How was it portrayed in the media, popular culture, government and internationally?

  4. What happened to Protect and Survive? Did it become ‘civil protection’? Does it still exist in some form?

This is a workshop rather than an academic seminar. The format will be to spend one hour (approx.) on each of the four issues (with a tea break at some point) and for perhaps one person to 'lead' each area (if anyone would like to volunteer to lead a particular area that woudl be great) by giving a five minute introduction to that topic.

The conference is open to anyone: academics, historians, collectors, policy makers, practitioners and anyone who is interested in "Protect and Survive"

Lunch is not included but you will get a cup of tea / coffee and a biscuit or two. At the end of the workshop you are welcome to join us for a drink.
