When the Wind Blows

Jim and Hilda Bloggs are a pleasant and naive, late middle-aged British couple, looking forward to retirement. At the beginning of the story Jim tells his wife "It looks like there's going to be a war, dear." Jim and Hilda survive the initial nuclear war, and continue uncomplainingly, naively trusting the government's useless nuclear survival brochures and instructions, unaware that they are dying.
