The Day After was a very big event.  In his diary Reagan was not complimentary of the movie and its intent.  I think he wrote that it was very chilling but that it wasn't going to make it any easier to lessen the prospects of a nuclear exchange actually happening.  

The O.J. chase is the first one that jumps out, because you didn't know how it was going to end.  If you haven't seen it, the ESPN 30 For 30 episode titled June 17th, 1994 is great viewing.  No narration, no plot, just a series of news clips from that day, morning to night.  It's incredible how many massive things were happening in the sports world on that day, all of them overshadowed by the chase that evening.
