Description
Episode Description
Looking closely at the dramatic Cold War years of 1946 to 1963, A Commitment To Peace shows how the evolving sophistication of nuclear weapons resulted in an urgent need for getting control of the arms race and for achieving peace among nations. Highlighted are some of the earliest steps towards peace along with first-hand accounts of our nation’s top physicists that include Herbert York and Harold Agnew. Other guests include a survivor of the atomic bombing of Nagasaki along with nuclear weapons designers from Los Alamos, Lawrence Livermore, and Sandia National Laboratories. Featured guest is historian Richard Rhodes who wrote the book Dark Sun: The Making of the Hydrogen Bomb about Cold War espionage and the making of the hydrogen bomb. Rhodes won a Pulitzer Prize for his earlier book, The Making of the Atomic Bomb. Funded in part by The National Educational Telecommunications Association.
