Copenhagen Fall Out (BBC Documentary)

Copenhagen Fall Out – Niels Bohr & Werner Heisenberg.

Inspired by the actual events that have intrigued and baffled historians for more than 50 years, Copenhagen revolves around a 1941 meeting between two brilliant physicists, Niels Bohr of Denmark (Stephen Rea) and Germany’s Werner Heisenberg (Daniel Craig); long-time friends whose work together had opened the way to the atomic bomb, but who were now on opposite sides of World War II. Heisenberg made a covert trip to see Bohr and his wife Margrethe (Francesca Annis) in Copenhagen, but the meeting ended in disaster. Copenhagen explores Heisenberg’s visit to Denmark and what happened during the pivotal meeting that was to become a defining moment of the nuclear age.
