TELELETTER THE DAILY MIRROR 15th May 1970

A pity that we've seen the last of the present series of 'Doomwatch' on BBC-1. But what a cracking good idea that it should go out literally with a big bang. The bomb incident had me in a lather of suspense. There were times when I could hardly bear to look. Roll on the new series.

Doomwatch certainly struck a chord with The Daily Mirror too. A month later, they began their own Doomwatch style investigations, with help from a certain Mr. Pedler... By contrast, the Daily Express would ignore Doomwatch phenomenon and it would be a further year before the last new buzzword in the English language began to make regular appearances in their vocabulary...
