Daily Video — “Duck and Cover” (1951)

Pulling from deep in the vaults today, we have the old Cold War film “Duck and Cover” (1951) from the Civil Defense Department and starring “Bert the Turtle”.  In this we learn just what to do in the case of a nuclear attack! This is from the amazing site archive.org and is in the Public Domain, so feel free to spread this where ever you like!
