Dr Helen Caldicott, an Australian paediatrician who has studied the medical effects of radiation, gives a compassionate and informative lecture on the dangers of nuclear reactors and weapons to college students in California in 1979, soon after the accident at the Harrisburg nuclear reactor.

Despite this chilling warning she ends on a note of hope for us all – “the curators of life on earth”. USA.
