Australia, 1987

A still image from Cold comfort: Australia's nuclear responsibilities

Cold Comfort is a lively and incisive documentary on the local and global consequences of the decision to export Australian uranium. It presents statements by those who support the mining of uranium for nuclear energy purposes, alongside those who oppose it. The program incorporates archival footage, and contemporary interviews to chart Australia’s participation in atomic history. Presented in four sequences. “The Uranium debate”, “The History of the bomb”, “Transportation of radioactive waste” and “Fallout from Chernobyl and Three Mile Island”.

Please note: this archive is an ongoing body of work. Sometimes the credit information (director, year etc) isn’t available so these fields may be left blank; we are progressively filling these in with further research.
