Adam Horowitz, Director, Producer and Writer, joins us live to discuss the documentary, Nuclear Savage: The Islands of Secret Project 4.1(http://nuclearsavage.com), PBS has refused to broadcast over the past year. Adam has been forced to undergo numerous revisions, yet the film has not broadcasted to date. Using U.S. declassified documents, interviews with Indigenous peoples from the Marshall Islands, the film uncovers how the U.S. government conducted nuclear testing, from 1946 to 1958, above ground or near Bikini and Enewetok atolls. The film shows, the heavily exposed people of Rongelap were then enrolled as human subjects in the top secret Project 4.1, evacuated to another contaminated (radioactive) island, and studied for radioactive fallout for over 30 years. Adam joins us live for the most of the hour for station Winter Fund Drive. The DVD will be exclusively available on tonight’s show.
