Wayne Brittenden’s Counterpoint

From Sunday Morning, 11:35 am on 2 February 2014

Last Wednesday marked the 50th anniversary of a movie that many critics believe to be one of the funniest ever made. Dr Strangelove nevertheless had a serious point to make about the high risks entailed in nuclear command and control systems. Wayne takes a look at the film's essential truths, and Richard follows up with Dr Tilman Ruff, Co-Chair of International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear Weapons.
