Just got word that on October 27th the National Geographic Channel will premiere a new movie….American Blackout. Looks really interesting and right up my alley.
Here is a short synopsis from NatGeo:
American Blackout imagines the story of a national power failure in the United States caused by a cyber attack told in real time, over 10 days, by those who kept filming on cameras and phones. You’ll learn what it means to be absolutely powerless. Gritty, visceral and totally immersive, see what it might take to survive from day one, and who would be left standing when the lights come back on.
From reading it , it sounds like there may be more than one episode but cannot see specifically any information on that from the shows website. Interesting concept. Generally I have felt that anything that gets people thinking about preparing is positive. Doomsday Preppers? – not so much. I think it shows preppers in a bad light. Just from what I have seen on the American Blackout website I am looking forward to watching it.
Here are a couple of promo video’s:
October 27th at 9pm on NatGeo. Should be interesting.
Special of blackouts….anyone have any interesting “power outage”stories of when there was an extended power outage? Lets keep it clean 🙂
