This week's programme in the series on Man and Science Today.
For several years now, many of us have closed our minds to the possibility of a nuclear war, as though the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki had never happened. Yet the build-up of nuclear weapons continues, with a current global stockpile equivalent to 10 tons of TNT for every person alive in the world today.
But quantity is no real measure of the problem of the balance of power. In the last 25 years over 7,000 increasingly sophisticated nuclear weapons have been developed in the US alone. The hours once available for calling off a bomber attack have been reduced to minutes with the missile systems.
Has this technology led to greater security for the countries concerned or to a situation fast becoming impossible to control? What real chance is there of ever calling off the arms race?
For this programme, Horizon filmed at a missile base in Missouri, an H-bomb museum in New Mexico, and talked to scientists personally involved in the dynamics of the arms race.
