Other titles:BRITAIN'S ATOMIC WEAPONS RESEARCH PROGRAMME COLLECTION [Allocated Series Title]
Summary: Edited scenes with commentary focusing on a clean-up session in an active area at Maralinga in Australia, following one of Britain's atomic weapons tests.
Description: A decontamination team assesses contamination and radiation levels, testing and removing contamination from soil. Cranes and bulldozers are used to clear large areas within the active area. Contaminated debris such as metal plates is cleared into a large pit, which when full is bulldozed over. Each area is then marked on maps for future reference. Personnel then undergo the full decontamination process back at camp. Vehicles used to travel to the active area are hosed down on a ramp.
