Mururoa 1973

Television (Full Length) – 1973

I think that the boats in the zone gave a real dramatic context to the issue [nuclear testing] so that the press worldwide was able to take it up and raise it in the consciences of people all over the world.
– Alister Barry
I just felt the ordinary person's indignation at the way the French were carrying on these tests in our part of the world in a way which endangered the environment.
– Colin Marshall, medic on the boat
