THE title of tonight's episode, Seven Minutes To Midnight, refers to the hypothetical Doomsday Clock that was started by atomic scientists during the Cold War to show just how close the human race is to blowing itself up.
Seven minutes to midnight is where the clock was set when it was first unveiled in 1947 by the Board of Directors of the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists at the University of Chicago.
With the emergence of India and Pakistan as nuclear adversaries and the Bush administration's shameful withdrawal from the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty, the clock lost all the ground it had gained over the decades and by 2002 was back to seven minutes to midnight.
