The Bismarck was the fabled German battleship of World War II. Traces the "life" of the Bismarck from its launching (courtesy of newsreel footage) through its many battles and narrow escapes, concluding with its far-from-inevitable sinking in the Spring of 1941.

The Soviet Union and the United States set off thermonuclear test bombs simultaneously, causing the Earth to shift from its normal orbit into a direct course toward the Sun. All over England, temperatures are on the rise, girls in bikinis are everywhere, and wonderful special-effects mists are blanketing the Thames River. Top scientists at the Meteorological Centre refuse to give any official explanation, which makes the newspaper editor suspicious. He orders science reporter Bill Maguire and columnist Peter Stenning to dig for information. When Peter begins a romance with Met Centre secretary Jeannie Craig, he learns from her certain clues that there has indeed been a cover-up. As water becomes scarce, the British government takes emergency measures to control hysteria, rampant looting, and rioting. The only possible solution may save Earth ... or may doom it to a faster extinction
