    The Longest Night reveals the untold story of the horrific bombing raid that almost brought Britain to military collapse - using extensive survivors' testimony and previously classified documents to reveal just how close the Luftwaffe came to total victory.   Demand increased during the war. Each of the million Air Raid Wardens carried one, and it is relatively easy to find a police whistle marked (like mine) “ARP”. These would’ve been used to direct and control crowds of panicked Londoners during the Blitz in the Second World War.

    Haldane, a communist sympathizer and eminent scientist, had studied at first hand the effects of air raids on the civilian population during the Spanish Civil War and had reached conclusions on the best way to protect them, which he had embodied in a book ARP published in In it he argued that high explosive, not gas, would be the main threat. The imminent threat of death giving life an immediacy, spontaneity and frisson absent during peace time. The Culture Show documentary seems to have been inspired to some extent by The Love-charm of Bombs: Restless Lives in the Second World War as they both cover similar territory, albeit Lara Feigel's account goes into much more detail/5(5).
