Part 2 of the documentary "The The Trials of J Robert Oppenheimer" is aired
on SBS 2 tonight.
Playing out like a modern day Greek tragedy, the figures of Lewis Strauss
and J Edgar Hoover become hell bent to crush the man
who had played such a pivotal role in the development of the A-bomb and thus had
helped bring WWII to a more rapid conclusion, yet now saw the implicit danger of
getting into an arms race with the H-bomb.
