In this short opinion piece, Christopher Andrew , Professor of Modern History at Cambridge University and a leading writer on military intelligence, argues that we are all lucky people - lucky to have escaped the horror of nuclear armageddon in the 50 years since the Hiroshima bomb.

A five-part series which tells the story of shopping from both sides of the counter. 3: Mail Order. Shopping by post began in rural America. Faraway from city centres, families had - in addition to the Bible - the Sears catalogue, which provided them with everythingfrom baby chicks to gravestones. In Britain, mail orderthrived in the north, where poorfamilies used catalogues to buy goods on credit.
Tonight's programme drops in on a wedding in Harrogate, north Yorkshire, where almost everything worn by the family was purchased from catalogues, with the exception of the bride's dress - which was made on a mail order sewing machine. It also visits an American coal mining community in Illinois, where entire houses were bought from a catalogue.
The secrets of mail order are revealed by 87-year-old Hazel Paget from Cleveland, who was a catalogue agent for 65 years and sold everything from corsets to shoes and funerals. But mail order is changingfast, with smaller catalogues targetingthe more affluent customer. In the US the industry is now dominated by "specialogues" - a trend which looks set to be repeated in Britain. Director Renee Knight ; Executive producer
