Summary

The Cold War race for nuclear supremacy throughout the 1950s and 1960s, when the US and the Soviet Union locked horns in a battle to build the most powerful atomic bomb. First-hand testimony and modern forensic investigation explores what happened when America's Castle Bravo went out of control, vaporising three small islands in the Pacific testing ground of Bikini Atoll and spreading severe radioactive fallout to nearby inhabited islands, and reveals the story of the Soviets' Tsar bomb, which was six times more powerful than Bravo.
