Radio Bikini (1987)
Movie InfoProduced and directed by Robert Stone, this critically acclaimed documentary uses declassified footage acquired through the Freedom of Information Act to tell the story of the Bikini islanders, who were removed from their homes by the U.S. government so that their atoll could be used for high-profile atomic bomb tests known as "Operation Crossroads" at the start of the Cold War.

Audience Reviews for Radio Bikini
Sobering, concise documentary made up almost entirely of old footage, surrounding the U.S. decision to test an atom bomb over Bikini Atoll.More
