Description

"Turning Point: Cover-Up at Ground Zero" examined the U.S. government's decades long effort to deny that there were any harmful effects resulting from the nuclear tests conducted on American soil in the 1950's and '60's. Using personal testimony and newly revealed archival evidence, the broadcast documented what one interviewee descrived as "the most long-lived program of public deception in U.S. history." "Turning Point" presented fresh support for that statement, including the startling revelation that one fo the chief decision-makers in the testing program warned his own family of its dangers whiel publicly denying any risk.
