For half a century, the aboriginal people of Maralinga have waited to get to get their land back.

Professor John Keane explores how the British commandeered their land from 1957 to 1963 to conduct atomic tests, and how far aboriginal people, servicemen and the environment were put at risk in the name of the Cold War.
