From the contest questionnaire: "The series tells the story of Jim Lyerly, a sailor who took part in nuclear weapons testing in the 1950s." The Daily Press finds the government's official version, which claims Lyerly and his shipmates aboard the USS Walton "were exposed to only paltry amounts of radiation," is wrong. Other findings are that the government set radiation standards without regard to what is actually dangerous; atomic veterans with numbers of ailments were told they had not been sufficiently exposed to qualify for compensation; records of actual testing appeared to be missing.
