Summary
Let us face, without panic, the reality of our times--the fact that atom bombs may someday be dropped on our cites--and let us prepare for survival, says the authoritative, measured, resonant voice of Edward R. Murrow. This Prelinger Archives film discusses how nuclear weapons cause damage through blast, heat, and radioactivity; the relatively minor effects on people of post-detonation radiation; and simple ways to protect oneself if at home or caught in the open when the A-bombs start to fall. "If the people of Hiroshima and Nagasaki had known what we know about civil defense, thousands of lives would have been saved.
