The Bomb - First Blast: Proliferation (1940-1992) - From Elsewhere:The Message/Calculated Risk/Seven Joys/Option/Little Russians archiveIt is the first year of World War II, and in Whitehall two emigre Jewish scientists are waiting for a meeting to get the British establishment to take their nuclear research seriously. The following plays then trace the history of Attlee's Labour party wrestling with the decision to build the Atomic Bomb, the Cuban missile crisis from a Russian perspective, China's war with India and the subsequent development of India's bomb, the break-up of the Soviet Union and the unilateral disarmament of Ukraine. Commissioned by the Tricycle The Bomb - a partial history is in two parts, is the political history of the Nuclear Bomb from 1940 to present-day Nuclear proliferation and its implications for the world now. Each of the two parts can be seen on consecutive nights or on an afternoon and evening over the weekend.
