CND: From Fear To Sanity

Issue No. 2114

This exhibition focuses on the early years of the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (CND). It combines photography, cartoons and posters with talks from those involved in CND at the beginning and film showings.

It brings out well the terror that people felt at the thought of nuclear war breaking out between the US and the Soviet Union during the Cold War.

This feeling led to the birth of CND in Britain and a mass movement that challenged nuclear weapons.

The film screenings include the Richard Burton narrated The March to Aldermaston, Trinity And Beyond and On The Beach.

From Fear To Sanity
