Prophetic voices in Amerca have been warning against alleged dangers inherent in nuclear power plants. The China Syndrome showing in local movie theatres focuses attention on the same problem.

New headlines from Harrisburg describe the frightenng accident which crippled Three Mile Island nuclear reactor and threatens widespread radioactive contamination. At this time of national interest and possible crisis comes a national spokesman long on record as opposing the proliferation of nucelar power plants.

Dr. Benjamin Spock is best known as the author of best-selling books on baby care - but he's also a famous peace leader. He is the former national chairman the Committee for a Sane Nuclear Policy (SANE) and, during the 1960s, was a leader in the draft resistance movement.

Dr. Spock discusses why he is against nuclear power in medical, social, and political contexts.
