I'm not up on my sci-fi. So, we're orbiting towards the sun, but how many billion light-years...
If that's true... I'd say there's about... four months.
Before there's a delightful smell in the universe of charcoaled mankind.

According to director Val Guest, there were two versions of the film. The original version had a topless scene with Janet Munro, and "one for the Americans" in which she has a strategically placed towel around her neck. See more »
This film holds a special place for me.....it was the inspiration to get into news broadcasting...no lie. I saw this film in the earl 60's and always was fascinated by the "newsroom", the teletype machines and, the reporters. The story was typical sci-fi but instead of filling the film with bug eyed monsters or giant creatures(which ain't bad by the way), it delved more into characters, emotions, plot... The idea of the world coming to an end has been done time and time again, but this was very well done. The black and white added to the dismal attitude, you could "see" the heat on the screen and feel it...Edward Judd, Leo McKern and Janet Munro were all excellent....kudos to director Val Guest. I understand that a re-make is being considered...please don't...you'll ruin it....
