An examination of nuclear power, and efforts by the nuclear power industry to convince a group of women journalists that nuclear power is safe. In November 1975, WBAI's Bonnie Bellow was taken on a trip by the Atomic Industrial Forum to visit Salem I and II, the nuclear power facility under construction in Salem Township, New Jersey. This program includes explanations of how a power plant works, the problems of disposing and storing spent fuel, the accidental diversion of nuclear fuel, the Rasmussen study, the hazards of uranium mining, and the economics of nuclear power. Produced by Bellow with technical direction by David Rapkin. Likely same program as IZ0136.
