The Manhattan Project oral history interviews by Smithsonian Videohistory Program ( )
in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Stanley Goldberg, consulting historian for the National Museum of American History, recorded eighteen video sessions with fifty-five participants involved in the engineering, physics, and culmination of the Manhattan Project. Goldberg examined the research and technologies necessary to realize the uranium and plutonium bombs. He supplemented interviews with visual documentation of the industrial plants that refined and separated the isotopes, and of the machinery that delivered and dropped the bombs. Interviewees explained the other steps of designing, building, testing and detonating an atomic bomb. Discussions with participants also elicited a social history of the Project as recalled by men and women with different duties in different locales. Between January 1987 and June 1990 the sessions were recorded on-site or in-studio in Hanford, Washington; Boston, Massachusetts; Oak Ridge and Louisville, Tennessee; Alamogordo and Los Alamos, New Mexico; Washington, DC; and Suitland, Maryland. The sessions are divided into five collection divisions: Hanford, Oak Ridge, Cambridge, Los Alamos, and Alberta

An evening with Hans Bethe: the German atomic bomb project by Hans A Bethe ( )
1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Begins with a 60-minute lecture by Hans Bethe on his interpretations of the Farm Hall transcripts of the secretly-recorded conversations among the German scientists captured and detained by the Allies in 1945. He compares the apparent developments in research as well as the political and military situation in Germany with the processes concurrently unfolding in the United States. A second brief lecture by Thomas Powers highlights the contributions of Werner Heisenberg to the German effort to develop an atomic bomb. The second tape (61 min.) is a conversation with Hans Bethe and Robert Wilson moderated by Kurt Gottfried about the people and processes involved in the effort to develop an atomic bomb. They discuss the interaction between the scientists and the U. S. government, the moral dilemmas and disagree on whether the Germans were really trying to build a bomb. The last tape (60 min.) is a conversation with Bethe and Victor Weisskopf about their immigration to the United States from Germany in the 1930s, their experience in the American culture, the students they taught, and attaining U. S. citizenship
