LIFF Audience Favourites on Leeds Film Player.

With a wealth of fantastic archive footage and a series of revealing interviews with those who had first hand experience, filmmaker Vicki Lesley tells the turbulent story of the West’s love-hate relationship with nuclear power over the past seventy years. Capturing both the tantalising promise and the repeated disappointments of this singular technology, the film reveals how the post-war, romantic fantasy of an atom-powered future developed into the stormy, on-off relationship still playing out today. A tale of scientific passion and political intrigue all wrapped up in the packaging of a sentimental screen melodrama.
