About the film

Our attitude to nuclear power has run the gamut from wild infatuation to bitter disillusion. Vicki Lesley’s absorbing documentary treats the subject as a romance, bringing a light touch to a weighty subject. Choice archive footage, vintage interviews and a jazzy soundtrack all enhance a decade-by-decade approach that stretches from Eisenhower’s influential 'Atoms For Peace' speech in 1953, to the Chernobyl disaster of 1986 and beyond. A wide-ranging piece that acknowledges those who thought nuclear power was a miracle technology and those who predicted a toxic legacy that will be felt for countless generations to come.
