Where The Wind Blew

Using archive and testimony from both those affected and those participating in these escalating events, WTWB shows not only how ordinary people were allowed to suffer in ignorance, but also how, with personal fortitude and courage they defied their governments. They helped change the course of history by joining forces, first nationally, then across the world to finally triumph against the testing of nuclear weapons. Kazakhstan became, in 1989, the first nation to close its test site, leading the way to an international test ban treaty.
The story does not end with this victory. Despite treaties & promises, today the super powers (and some more) once again build up their nuclear arsenals. With global tensions on the increase, we more than ever need reminding about the lessons of history.
