In the time capsule today…
We find Mr. Rogers Neighborhood airing a five episode arc about nuclear war. The episodes ran only one time, and have never been re-run.
We find a film about a young computer hacker, who almost starts War World III. The film led to the first Presidential directive on computer security. Matthew Broderick stars in War Games.
And we find a song on the radio by Billy Idol. According to Billy, the song is not about his actual sister, who did get married when the song was written. He explained later that his sister's wedding simply gave him the idea for the song title. After penning the title, he wrote the song from there.
