"...Declassified footage of US government tests..."

Description by Image Entertainment:
Full photographic coverage of the only tests ever conducted of the effects of a nuclear bomb on a typical American community. The nuclear bomb was brought to 'America's doorstep' during an unusual series of nuclear tests conducted in the Nevada desert in the 1950s. "At Ground Zero" contains the first ever compilation of the full length official documentaries that chronicle the effects of these tests as the full fury of a nuclear bomb is demonstrated on the typical American home.
