The Day the Sun Blowed Up Narrated by James Cameron
On 16 July 1945, at 5.30 in the morning, the world's first atom bomb was experimentally exploded in the desert of New Mexico. This is the story of the fateful days of secret preparation for the test. It is told by some of the scientists and soldiers who were intimately concerned, and is illustrated by previously unseen colour film. The story is also told by some of the local inhabitants for whom the birth of the nuclear age came as a total and alarming surprise. ' I heard the explosion and thought something had blowed up in the yard out in front of the store. I went out and there was a man just standing there looking kind of dumbfounded and I asked him, "What blowed up out here?" And he said, " Look over yonder," (looking to the east of us) "the sun blowed up!

This week Paul Gambaccini and Fran Morrison visit the Buxton Festival.
This adventurous festival has taken for its theme this year the 100th anniversary of the birth of the Hungarian composer Zoltan Kodaly. There are songs written by Kodaly, sung by his young widow Sarolta, and, from the famous Opera House, an extract from the British premiere of his opera Hary Janos.
Kodaly and children were synonymous, as is the Buxton Festival and children's opera. This year Charles Strouse , who wrote Annie, has a premiere of his new musical Nightingale. And lending their particular blend of anarchic humour to the programme are this year's Cambridge Footlights.
