NUCLEAR NEWSREEL

FILM GUIDE

Production History
Nuclear Newsreel was one of the first independently produced, satellite distributed, documentaries. In many ways it was a precursor of the indy media center movement that grew out of the anti-globalization protests in Seattle in 1999. In 1983, without computers or the web Alison Brysk and I created a network of reports on an International Day of Protest against Nuclear Weapons. This was part of the Nuclear Freeze movement at the time --- an effort to halt the production, testing and deployment of nuclear weapons. On June 26, 1983 coordinated protest were held around the world. We air freighted ĺĒ video footage from Japan, Holland, Germany, New Mexico, Vermont, California, Conneticutt etc. to the studios of the Bay Area Video Coalition in San Francisco. We took over the entire facility and teams of volunteer editors worked through the night on linear editing systems to cut segments for our half hour production. We were greatly assisted by the Kim Spencer (Now President of Link TV) whose experience and expertise proved invaluable. The field footage was integrated with previously shot interviews of experts including Daniel Ellsberg. Steve Mostís research and script provided the guide. Bernard Mayes was the anchor. The completed program was uplinked 72 hours after the protests, and aired on public television stations throughout the United States.
