Classic film gets new lease of life
June 07, 2010
A classic piece of Dounreay’s heritage from the 1950s has been given a new lease of life on the Internet.
The Dounreay Sphere – Design and Construction was a technical film made for the UK Atomic Energy Authority.
It charts the construction of the giant sphere inside which Britain’s first experimental fast breeder reactor would operate.
A 25-minute version of the film has been recovered from the site’s archive and can be viewed via the video library of www.dounreay.com.
