The first H-bomb detonates and the proud father is Edward Teller. But he's on a collision course with Robert Oppenheimer, the inventor of the bomb that obliterated Hiroshima. Now, Oppenheimer has turned pacifist and the government will stop at nothing to “neutralize” him… and Teller is their star witness. The broadcast includes an interview with Richard Rhodes, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of “The Making of the Atomic Bomb.”
