Educational Movies about the Atomic Bomb
The clips, produced in 1955 and 1959 about the atomic bomb, radioactive fallout and how you can protect your self from it. For someone born in later decades it is probably hard to grasp the hype, fear and fascination about the atomic bomb in the height of the cold war era.
Especially for those living on the eastern seaboard of the US, which were apparently only 13 days away from a possible nuclear attack from Cuba in 1962. These clips will make sure that you learn how to best protect your self from a nuclear blast and also demonstrate the full effect of a live atomic bomb explosion. Very kitschy. And very real.
