This fascinating 1983 segment features a network TV news exploration of a then current fear: Is the scenario portrayed in the insipid film "WarGames" actually realistic? Can home "computer hackers" really trigger a thermonuclear war? Great fun for everyone in this video, which also includes a couple of hopefully interesting/amusing beginning and ending clips (not necessarily from 1983) bracketing the report. From the Vortex Video Archive.
