A is for Atom

A Is for Atom
Before V for Vendetta there was A is for Atom. This curious animation by John Sutherland Productions in 1953 for General Electric Company. The animation presents an atom, how energy is released from certain kinds of atoms, the peacetime uses of atomic energy and the byproducts of nuclear fission. It’s an obvious example of positive propaganda after the disgraceful use of atomic energy in the World War II. It’s a well done and amusing animation, and watching an atom of radium dancing is priceless. (15 minutes).
