ABC News Viewpoint - The Day After - "Yet More Audience Questions & Sagan's Analogy" (Part 7, 1983)

Here is Part 7 of the live ABC News Viewpoint special on "The Nuclear Dilemma". This aired after The Day After on WLS Channel 7 - an ABC Theater telemovie about the effects of a full-scale nuclear attack on the United States. Hosted by Ted Koppel.

Panel of guests were Dr. Henry Kissinger, Carl Sagan, Brent Scowcroft, William F. Buckley, Jr., Elie Wiesel, and Robert McNamara.

In this part Carl Sagan gives his now famous analogy, "Imagine, a room, awash in gasoline. And there are two implacable enemies in that room. One of them has 9,000 matches. The other has 7,000 matches. Each of them is concerned about who's ahead, who's stronger..."

This aired on local Chicago TV Sunday, November 20th 1983.

I had heard that the field was so bad the day after Disco Demolition that the game on Friday had to be cancelled. If that's true, how was the game made up and what were the scores of the other games (Saturday July 14th and Sunday July 15th) in the series?

Rot-An-Egg is my personal favorite. A giant seems to have stepped on poor Dudley.

Is there any clips after the video or the recording is cut?

I love how that Jim Sutera guy has to loudly crinkle his bag of peanuts (or potato chips or whatever it is) and then stuff one in his mouth while he's talking. That's real class!

On July 12, 2014, it will mark the 35th anniversary of Disco Demolition event. Even though the second game was a forfeit, luckily nobody got hurt or died as a result of the melee.

And unfortunately the ChiSox lost the 2nd game to the Tigers 9-0 via forfeit.
