Beyond the Classroom presents "In My Lifetime"

Description:
In our lifetime a nuclear-armed world emerged, and with it, the potential for global destruction on a scale never before possible. Is it also possible that in a single lifetime nuclear weapons could be abolished? In My Lifetime provides a comprehensive look at the full scope and impact of the nuclear age from its beginnings to the present day, including the international efforts by citizens, scientists and political leaders to reduce or eliminate the nuclear threat. In My Lifetime portrays the history of the nuclear era and the complex search for a a way beyond. Manhattan Project scientists, former military personnel, and survivors of the first atomic bombs remind us how the nuclear age began  and what we seek to avoid from happening ever again. The film attempts to uncover the forces that brought us to the present number of nuclear-armed countries, and the obstacles  both political and human  that have blocked the world from reaching the solution all ultimately desire. {Will appear in FYI on Nov 20, 2012
