Eye Witness No. 1

| 11 min

In this installment of the Eye Witness series from 1947, we visit Chalk River, Canada's atomic energy project, for an update. We see the production and handling of radioactive isotopes destined for medical and agricultural research. Then we visit South Africa for a report on the Canadian trade mission while surveying the industrialization that's taken place and affected the Commonwealth nation.
