Duke of York's Picturehouse, Brighton

With gems from the archives, a lush romantic score and a warm and playful tone, the New Scientist commented the film “takes no sides and pulls no punches in its witty and admirably objective archival account of the West’s relationship with nuclear power”.

The documentary charts the West’s rollercoaster love-hate relationship with nuclear power over the past 75 years. It’s a dramatic tale of belief, betrayal, intrigue and hope, and it’s told by the scientists, engineers, politicians and campaigners who experienced it first-hand.

After the screening, Brighton Energy's Co-founder & Chair, Will Cottrell, will host a Q&A panel with the film's Director Vicki Lesley, BHESCo’s Founder & CEO, Kayla Ente MBE, a member of the Nuclear Consulting Group which consists of experts in academia and NGOs on the topic of nuclear, plus Professor of Science and Technology Policy at Sussex University, Andy Stirling.
