VOLUME XIV: OPERATIONS CANNIKIN & PLOWSHARE
Atomics At War & Peace Underground

Contents:

Project Cannikan (13:14)
The Atomic Energy Commission's 1971 series of underground tests conducted on Amchitka Island, Alaska, at 11:00 a.m., Bering Standard Time, on November 6, 1971. It's purpose: to test the design of the Spartan anti-ballistic missile, itself a high-yield nuclear warhead that produced sufficient x-rays and debris to prevent the blackout of ABM radar systems. It also resulted in the formation of a peace activist organization created to stop these tests which ultimately transformed itself into Greenpeace. This film pays particular attention to the overal planning and specific results of the project in a tone both executive and scholarly.

The Amchitka Program (24:16)
This film pays particular attention to Project Cannikan's organization and execution in a reassuring tone no doubt intended to calm the objections of those hostile to the project.

Plowshare (28:06)
A 1973 film which looks back over the prior 12 some years of this project which endeavored to find peaceful uses of Atomic energy, particularly with regard to excavation, citing Micah 4:3 ("And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more").

Excavating With Nuclear Explosives (8:53)
1968 saw the creation of this film by the Atomic Energy commission with the purpose of selling government and industry the concept of nuclear excavation by way of recounting the progress of the project up to that point.

NOTE: Due to the classified nature of some of their subject matter, the U.S. Department of Defense has in small sections silenced the audio tracks or still-framed the video tracks of some of these films. These portions are not a product defect, are short in duration, and do not detract from a satisfying viewing experience.
