Overview

Narrated by Jane Alexander, Building Bombs is a disturbing documentary about atomic energy industry's ongoing lack of concern for the public and its safety. In 1956, the Savannah River Plant was built near Aiken, Georgia. Most of the townsfolk were "invited" to leave by the Atomic Energy Commission to accommodate the plant. According to this film, one family refused to leave. The government solved this dilemma by having the family declared insane and institutionalized. This is but one of many dirty little secrets uncovered by Department of Energy engineer Bill Lawless, who along with physics engineer-turned-antinuclear activist Art Dexter augment the political slant of Building Bombs.
