Editorial Reviews

A Bomb in the Basement is the first documentary film that tells the story of the development of Israel's nuclear capability. It relates the story of the most complex, costly and secret project ever carried by Israel.

A Bomb in the Basement focuses at the French-Israeli nuclear connection and the U.S. administration unsuccessful effort to stop Israel from building The Bomb.

David Ben-Gurion, Israel's creator, began to contemplate the Israeli ultimate deterrent in the early years of statehood. The lessons of the Holocaust and fears for Israel's survival persuaded Ben-Gurion that the state must have a defensive measure in the form of an ultimate deterrent,. He called it "life insurance" for the country.

Shimon Peres, who directed Israel's nuclear project in the nineteen fifties and sixties, reveals details about the nuclear agreement with France that enabled Israel to build Dimona's nuclear installations.
