The films in Atomic cafe don't really promote nuclear energy as much as
propagandize the uses of nuclear weapons.

You might try: Atomic T.V. available from

This is a compilation of 50's ads, some of which tout nuclear energy as the
wave of the future. Similarly, "You Can Beat the A-bomb"--available from
FACETS has some stuff about nuclear energy. Too bad Disney's "Our Friend
the Atom" has never made it onto video! (but check out: See You Real

Sammond at http://media-in-transition.mit.edu/articles/sammond.html)
