"Sorry to bomb your island sir"
A variety of clips here of 2 atomic blasts, one Hiroshima, the other at Bikini Atoll. The first bunch are a mixture of the icky with the efforts of Hiroshima trying to rebuild. The latter half of the picture is actually a really good extended newsreel about the lead up towards the test at Bikini Atoll. The narrator bemusingly mixes pathos with giddiness here, and there's all sorts of interesting facts I didn't know. I didn't know for one thing, that all those ships were empty. I mean, i'm pretty clueless. Reccomended!
