Nuclear Requiem

The History Channel  |  August 5, 2018

Recent international developments are increasing concerns about the possibility of a nuclear confrontation. That concern led the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists in early 2017 to move its famous Doomsday Clock to two-and-a-half minutes before midnight - the closest to midnight since 1953. Updated following the 2016 presidential election, this program presents an in-depth reflection on the danger nuclear weapons pose, an assessment of the current obstacles to disarmament, and a frank discussion of what it will take to overcome the roadblocks to reduce the nuclear threat. Featured are more than three dozen top security experts and citizen activists from around the world.
