Description

By British_Movietone

Description:
Deep in the backlocks of Australia, far beyond Woomera itself, scientific preparations, directed by Sir William Penney were carried out. After a wait of ten days, the right weather conditions prevailed to allow the Atomic explosion to take place. Pictures just released (for security reasons) reveal the full fury of Britain's latest Atomic weapon.|Cut story - KS. Spiral of smoke from bomb shot across, wild trackless country. Lorry on journey carrying supplies. Australian flag flying. Interior - scientists etc. seated around table completing arrangements. Wipe. Shot of tower constructed especially to hold bomb. Dr Penney arrives from plane. Dons shady bush hat. Plane on tarmac almost hidden by dust storm. Newspaper on ground say 'Atom men await right wind'. Fade to weather balloon released. CUs of control dials, panels of flashing lights showing that apparatus is ready. CU dial ticking up to zero. LS explosion light rays radiating from same. Distorted mushroom of smoke rises. Rockets fired to obtain radio-active samples. CU of a camera. Slow motion shots of bomb exploding. Scientists stand in ground, turn to look at bomb. Dr Penney turns to look. Seems to be caught by delayed blast from bomb as he turns from it.
Dateline: 1954
