Description

Segments from an interview with Beth Meyers conducted by Kaye McIntyre of Kansas Public Radio for a KPR special commemorating the thirty-year anniversary of the 1983 broadcast of The Day After, a made-for-TV movie depicting the aftermath of nuclear war, which was set and filmed primarily in Lawrence, Kansas. The KPR special aired on November 12, 2013. The interview was conducted at the Watkins Museum of History on June 28, 2012. Meyers was an extra in the film, portraying a blast survivor. She describes being covered in realistic-looking makeup. Later, extras attended a local disco while still wearing their gruesome makeup. The bombing scenes gave her nightmares for days afterward.
