Film 'Silent Storm': Dr Hedley Marston and 1950s Atomic Tests
Silent Storm is an important film by Director Peter Butt and tells the story of CSIRO scientist and local St Peters resident Dr Hedley Marston who controversially claimed that the British atomic tests at Maralinga led to the fall-out of deadly Strontium 90 across Adelaide and Southern Australia in the 1950s. Marston's argument was that the food chain was being contaminated and that the tests were endangering human health. His torrent of complaints to government officials led to ASIO labelling him as a security threat. This screening of the film will be followed by a Q&A with the Director.
