Safe Mode: On
Silent Storm (Documentary) - 3 of 5

Did fallout from nuclear testing
contaminate Australia's milk supply? From 1957 to 1978, scientists
secretly removed bone samples from over 21,000 dead Australians as they
searched for evidence of the deadly poison, Strontium 90 - a by-product
of nuclear testing. Silent Storm reveals the story behind this
astonishing case of officially sanctioned 'body-snatching'. Set against a
backdrop of the Cold War, the saga follows celebrated scientist, Hedley
Marston, as he attempts to blow the whistle on radioactive
contamination and challenge official claims that British atomic tests
posed no threat to the Australian people. Marston's findings are not
only disputed, he is targeted as 'a scientist of counter-espionage
interest'. Now, questions are being raised about the health
repercussions for generations of Australians.
