Shows how a one megaton (small) nuclear attack would devastate Derby and surrounding areas. 40 mins. Local GPs talk of medical effects of such an attack and how civil defence plans to cope with survivors are totally useless. A health visitor stresses that it is the duty of health professionals to look at preventive medicine and this includes trying to prevent nuclear war. It concludes that if health workers read the BMA report they can hardly fail seriously to question involvement in civil defence planning and would commit themselves to nuclear disarmament.
