What was this planetarium show, c. 1984-5 about nuclear winter?

Help me remember this presentation I think I saw as a child during the Reagan administration, featuring a Michael Jackson song.

When I was a kid I remember going to the Santa Barbara Planetarium (or possibly the Griffith Park Observatory in L.A.) and seeing a film or slideshow projected onto the dome overhead, dealing with the dangers of nuclear war.

I remember a voiceover by a fictitious young girl of the future who is describing what happened "after the nuclear winter." The show closed out with something along the lines of "We Are The World" (which came out in 1985 -- maybe this happened as late as 1985 but I remember it being from earlier.) Maybe it was a different Michael Jackson song or by another pop artist. It's likely that Carl Sagan was involved.

Is there any way I can find out what this was, or would it exist in an online form somewhere? Any help much appreciated.

Are you thinking of Captain EO, by any chance?

Response by poster: Not Captain EO, though.
