abstract
In a devastating instant at Hiroshima, the world was propelled into the age of nuclear armaments. This program, set against the backdrop of World War II, documents the race to invent the atomic bomb: the allied scientists who made it possible, the technological hurdles they overcame, the deep moral issues they confronted, and the responsibility they accepted knowingly or unknowingly for the fate of the free world.
