DVD1985 90 Minutes

Nuclear power and nuclear weapons in Britain.

Unstable Elements is a major feature length film about nuclear Britain. Using revealing interviews with prominent scientists, and extraordinary newsreels from the 1940s and 1950s, it traces how Britain came to build the bomb, and how the bomb was sold to the public. As the nuclear industry continues to provoke controversy with its plans for expansion, this film reflects upon a practice which sees nature as a resource to be dominated and exploited

Combining several stories in one film, it also examines, through its fictional part, the way the tunnel vision of the atomic scientists is reflected in family life. It is a many-layered film, which speaks to the peace and anti-nuclear movements, as well as to a wider general audience.
