China's Nuclear Bomb [electronic resource]

In 1964 Mao Zedong's People's Republic became the fifth nation to test a nuclear weapon, changing the balance of power in eastern Asia, and the rest of the world, forever. Set against the backdrop of the developing Cold War, this documentary uses personal interviews and extraordinary archival footage in its dramatic account of the making of China's first atomic bomb. Acclaimed director Peter Du Cane weaves historical data with human logistics as he charts the construction of testing facilities, obtaining of materials, and recruitment of scientists - who couldn't tell their families about the top-secret project - while keeping the implications of global politics always in sight.
