Burma’s Nuclear Ambitions 40:00, 2010 (Ref: AS10779)


In 2010 Burma held its first elections for 20-years – but without the participation of the main opposition group the National League for Democracy (NLD) led by Aung San Suu Kyi. The NLD won the last election in 1990 with nearly 90% of the votes, but was never allowed to take power by the Burmese military. Since then there have been several uprising – all crushed brutally by the military. We entered the country undercover to find out how Myanmar’s (the military’s name for Burma) people are fairing and to investigate disturbing claims that the regime may be trying to develop nuclear weapons. The film contains video and interviews to support this claim.
