Day After Trinity, The 1x59, or 1x88

An Emmy┬« Award-winning documentary about those who build nuclear weapons. This extremely moving work concentrates on the life story of physicist J. Robert Oppenheimer and his role in producing the first atomic bomb. A strong drama of personal, political and moral forces is revealed through the use of newly declassified government footage and the memories of the major surviving participants in the Oppenheimer story. The effect of the film is profoundly emotional, evoking a time when millions of Americans rejoiced that such a weapon “worked” without possibly foreseeing its still-resounding results.
