Overview

Sam Waterston starred as controversial atomic scientist J. Robert Oppenheimer in this seven-part British miniseries. Among the many American scientists committed to the top-secret "Manhattan Project" of the WWII years, Oppenheimer was like most of his colleagues eager to prove the efficiency of atomic energy as a "weapon for peace" -- and to beat the Nazis in the development of the A-Bomb. But upon witnessing the first test explosion in Los Alamos, Oppenheimer realized "I had become death," and he dedicated the rest of his life to the pursuit of peace without having to resort to nuclear armament. As a result, he became a security risk to the U.S. government, and ultimately one of the most famous and conspicuous victims of the postwar anti-communist hysteria. Originally telecast by the BBC from October 29 to December 10, 1980, Oppenheimer later aired in the United States as a component of the PBS miniseries Masterpiece Theatre.

    Been looking for this program for years!

    I saw this program about Oppenheimer when it first aired in the United States and I remembered that it was extremely well done! There are not many programs that make such as impression on me that I would start looking for it once videos and DVDs became available. But Sam Waterston was phenomenal and when "Law and Order" first came on the air I remembered him as "the actor from Oppenheimer". Last year I searched for this program yet again and found it available only in England - makes sense since it was originally a BBC program! Glad it is finally available to U.S. audiences. Would recommend this to anyone interested in the coming of the atomic age and the moral dilemma of those scientists who were instrumental in its development. Excellent, excellent program!!!
