Special Bulletin ★★★ 1983

A pacifistic terrorist threatens to blow up Charleston, South Carolina, with a nuclear warhead. Done quite well in docu-drama style as a TV news bulletin. Interesting examination of the media's treatment of dramatic events. Top-notch made-for-TV fare. 105m/C VHS . Ed Flanders, Christopher All-port, Kathryn Walker, Roxanne Hart; D: Edward Zwick; W: Marshall Herskovitz, Edward Zwick. TV
