Sean Pertwee narrates as the docu-drama series tells the story of the heavy price paid by one man in his efforts to stop the escalating arms race in the face of Cold War efforts to build the 'superbomb' - an atomic device so powerful it could push the world to the edge of destruction. So for example, there was Edward Teller, who had grown up in Hungary, where he had learned to dread the Soviet Russians over the hill, just as his German colleague, Klaus Fuchs, had feared the Nazis so much that he was willing to spy for the Soviets, whom he could view only as friends of mankind. When the United States learns of the first Soviet atomic blast, the Americans start developing the H-bomb in response.

After spending nearly two hours explaining the difficulties in cracking the riddles of physics to achieve this recondite technology, narrator David Ogden Stiers notes that ridding ourselves of this menace is proving even harder. But the primary focus here is the intense competition between American and Soviet physicists in the mid-1950s to create weapons that would dwarf the power of the atom bombs the United States dropped on Japan in the final days of the Second World War.
