Examination of nuclear mishaps
10 April 2005 | by (Calgary, AB, Canada) – See all my reviews

Not a bad documentary of nuclear close-calls, spanning from the '50s to the '80s. Well researched and, in many cases, with interviews with those directly involved. Adam West does a good job of narration.

Scary stuff. Multi-megaton madness. On one hand I admire the dedication that individuals have put towards the nuclear program, but on the other cannot see any possible justification for the huge human and economic drain. With so much power in the atom, it is definitely the wise move to understand and use such knowledge for peace, and not for intimidation, control and bureaucratic self justification, but I digress.

I enjoyed this documentary, yet still don't quite understand its prerequisite.
