Taken at face value, the presentations were exceptionally persuasive and effective. The Fifth Horseman alluded to The Bible's Revelation account of the Apocalypse. Revelations tells of four 'horsemen', euphemisms for conquest, war, famine and death. The four horsemen rode four horses of distinctively varying colors: 'Conquest' rode a white mount, 'War' a red mount, 'Famine' a black mount, and 'Death' a pale [or pale green] mount.
The four horsemen were also equipped with varying armament: Conquest wielded a crown and bow, War a sword, Famine a scale, and Death a scythe.
A fifth horseman was alluded to in various publications, films, short features, animations, and pulp stories of the early to mid-20th Century--and beyond. Conjecture regarding a possible fifth horseman--imagined or prophesied--proved to be a persuasive euphemism for a number of perceived evils of the era. Ranging from 'fear', to miracle cures in Medicine, to economic collapse, or in this instance, the introduction of nuclear technology to a post-War world, the imagery of an influence as religiously and philsophically profound as a 'fifth horseman' invoked a number of highly emotional messages.
The highly charged implications of the post-War Atomic Age made for fertile soil for both fear-mongering and sociological promise in a wide range of human endeavors. On the one hand, nuclear energy, nuclear medicine and nuclear forensics in many scientific disciplines presented great promise for dramatic technological advances for mankind. The flip side of the Atomic Age was all too fresh to all of mankind as the effects of the nuclear explosions 1,600 feet over both Nagasaki and Hiroshima continued to be studied by scientists throughout the world, as well as demanding spiritual and philosophical reflection by every race, creed, and religion of mankind.
Needless to say, this undertaking was fraught with potential consequences no matter how NBC's The Fifth Horseman was presented to the public.
