Storyline

Hiroshima. August 6, 1945: the atomic bomb explodes. More of 70,000 dead and much more wounded. In that day, mankind discovers the power of nuclear weapons, and it discovers the fear too. When a few years later the H-Bomb explodes in the Pacific ocean the fear and panic grow up of alarming way and during 50 years, during all the Cold War, sometimes the mankind almost disappears in a nuclear apocalypse. In this travel across the time some military and war experts explain as the human race was very near of the total extinction by a nuclear holocaust. A danger what still exists today...

Trivia

In the sequence about the Cuban missile crisis, the narrator says "For the first time ever, the president invoked pentagon procedures for nuclear war" while a still shot of Kennedy signing something is superimposed with footage of war preparations. Among this footage is a shot of two unusual jet fighters taking off simultaneously. These unswept low-wing planes with two engines above their wings are neither American nor Russian but in fact Canadian Avro Canada CF-100 Canucks. See more »

Goofs

The aerial color shot of the rising 'Hiroshima' mushroom cloud shown early on is actually from Nagasaki. There is no footage of the Hiroshima explosion or rising cloud due to equipment malfunction; there are only a few seconds of film showing the static Hiroshima cloud some time after the explosion.
