PBS Premiere: August 6, 1989
The Bomb is killing ordinary Americans, even in the absence of a nuclear war. That's the thesis of this chilling — but ultimately hopeful — film which explores in evocative, personal and immediate terms how all of us have been affected by the nuclear age. Denounced by officials and shunned by broadcasters when it was first released, many of the issues it raised have become today's front page headlines.

May be the most eloquent, far-ranging and convincing film on the subject to date, as well as the one that offers the best evidence for hope.”
