AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Researched, written, designed and directed by Richard Fotheringham, Fallout and Follow Me is a 25 minute show focusing on the debate around uranium and domestic nuclear energy. One of the key targets is the involvement of large corporations such as Westinghouse and General Electric in trying to popularise domestic nuclear power stations in the USA and elsewhere, regardless of the dangers.

The production used a World War One recruiting rally as its metaphor, and utilised songs from that era.
