Quote of the day: “I realised that my whole life had been lived in the shadow of the nuclear bomb. I was born in the year the atom bomb was dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, I was at school during the Cuban Missile Crisis when the real possibility of nuclear war affected us each day, I became politically aware during the heyday of CND, I lived through the worries of fallout from atmospheric testing, and now hear almost daily news bulletins about the nuclear threat from Iran, North Korea or from rogue terrorist groups.” (Nicolas Kent’s ‘Introduction’ to the Tricycle Theatre’s The Bomb: A Partial History)
