"THE PEACEFUL ATOM" - PRO-ATOMIC ENERGY 1950S SPEECH A nuclear reactor fades to a man standing in his office giving a speech on the benefits of atomic energy: "You and I are living in the atomic age. The peaceful atom, no longer just a laboratory dream is here today working wonders providing a happier, more abundant world for all mankind.” The man continues talking then the camera pans past him to a map of the United States on the wall that fades to a city skyline.

AUTOMATION & TECHNOLOGY Examples of advanced technology during the postwar era: a rocket blasts off, an astronaut is helped from his capsule, computer reels spin, a robotic vacuum cleaner, scientist looks into a microscope, glass containers fill a lab, another scientist manipulates robotic hands holding a test tube, the mushroom cloud of an atomic bomb. Contrasted with a line of hard-hatted workers carrying lunch pails, a community of poor people in small shacks. Automatic industrial equipment in the workplace. Men confer in front of a wall of antiquated reel to reel computers.
H-BOMB SURVIVORS RECOVER The last of 23 Japanese fishermen who were injured when H-bomb "fall out" from the Bikini tests fell on their fishing boat are released from the hospital. One of the victims died but the others are alive--they experienced the nightmare of our atomic age.
NUCLEAR SUB STARTS SEA TRIALS A new era dawns in the age of the atom as the Nautilus, first vessel powered by nuclear fission, begins its sea trials in Groton, Connecticut. A revolution in naval design, it's the forerunner of many new peaceful roles for atomic power.
