This series takes us back to the time of the birth of the nuclear bombs. It shows the lives of scientists who created it, stole it and sold it. The actors depicting the real life of those people did a fabulous job. It also did a good job in highlighting the fact that there is a great risk now that these technologies can easily slip into the wrong hands. After seeing these documentaries one can only ask the question as to whether the weapons have stopped the third world war permanently or are they being manufactured to be in it. It also highlights that the international politics has driven the scientists to develop destructive power of such titanic magnitudes. Overall this documentary is a must watch to know the history and the present state of nuclear weapons in the world,
