Ultimate Weapon: Oppenheimer and the Atomic Bomb

Loading
"J. Robert Oppenheimer, the Father of the A-bomb, creates the world's deadliest weapon of mass destruction--with the "power of 1,000 suns" it can annihilate tens of thousands in a moment. His scientific brilliance is the power behind the atom bombs used against the Japanese during WWII, but his conscience led him to question the invention that helped end the war. Watch as Oppenheimer paces anxiously in New Mexico while the crew on a B-29 bomber, the Enola Gay, deploys the massive "Little Boy" bomb towards the Aioi Bridge in Hiroshima. The resulting massive loss of life leads Oppenheimer to rethink the way in which nuclear energy was to be used."--Http://media.aetv.com.

After the war, Bill went to Movietone News and then to NBC. He reported on the Leopold and Loeb trial, the desegregation of the schools in Little Rock, and Castr [...]

The Big Ditch

Loading
When, after 85 years, the U.S. turned over the Panama Canal to the government of Panama, an era ended in U.S./ Latin American affairs. This short film outlines this fascinating chapter of history, from the leasing of the land by Teddy Roosevelt for $10,000, to the ill-fated attempt by De Lesseps who engineered the Suez Canal, to the conquest of malaria, and the ten years of back-breaking work to complete the canal by a crew of 24,000. The colony on the 230,000 acres on either side of the majestic waterway had its own governor, police force and stores. The American withdrawal signaled the biggest transfer of real estate in the hemisphere. It was to affect the lives of American servicemen and their families, many of whom had become accustomed to the comforts of life there. Most Panaman [...]
