Sue Rabbitt Roff has spent decades researching the cover up of British atomic testing in Australia, Christmas Island and the Monte Bello Islands. In her article, Roff demonstrates the crucial role oral histories play in countering official narratives that obfuscate or deny Australian tests. For those who have seen the film Oppenheimer, and who may have wondered about connections between the Manhattan Project and Australian scientists, or about the extent to which Australian prime minister Robert Menzies was informed regarding the intentions of the British, Roff’s dense and highly informative article will provide many answers. Roff includes a call to action, making the point that many primary sources are available to the public but have yet to be comprehensively studied.
