Bertie and the Bomb
Written and narrated by Michael Dean
His intimates (of whom there were many, especially women) called him
Bertie. Society knew him as Lord Russell, the outrageously brilliant scion of a family born to rule. To scholars he was one of the greatest of English philosophers and mathematicians. Around the world, where-ever books were read, he was the eloquent apostle of social and sexual reform. But it was in the last years of a long and turbulent life that Bertrand Russell became a towering figure on the world stage, as the passionate advocate of nuclear disarmament, as the white-haired prophet who warned of man's imminent peril.
At a time when CND is rampant again after a decade of near silence, MICHAEL DEAN looks at the last fascinating chapter of a great Englishman s life. Archive film, interviews with friends and contemporaries and Russell's memorable testament, recorded for posterity in his vigorous old age, combine in this portrait of a genius for passion, lucidity and mischief.
