Codename Project 9 on amazon.com

September 7, 2018

See my short film about the role played by Trail, B.C., in making the atomic bomb

The people of Trail, British Columbia, kept one of the biggest Canadian secrets of the Second World War. Most didn’t know it at the time but they were involved in something of world-shattering importance.

Codename Project 9 breaks the wartime code of silence that had settled over the city in the early 1940s and reveals how P9 played a role in the Manhattan Project.

In the film, viewers hear workers describe the heavy water plant in Warfield near Trail. Historians explain how the P9 tower came to be under the guidance of powerful industrialist S.G. Blaylock. We meet the nuclear scientists who developed the atomic bomb and hear Trail’s current mayor and others clarify P9’s purpose. Finally, Codename Project 9 discusses the historic significance of P9 and the fight to save it from the wrecker’s ball.

You can now view Codename Project 9 at amazon.com. Streaming costs $1.99, a DVD $9, a companion booklet $10, and an ebook $4.95. I welcome your comments.
