Summary
In April 2000, a $108 million clean-up of the former British A-bomb test site in South Australia was declared a success and the Maralinga Tjarutja Aboriginal people were told it was safe to move back onto their lands. But leaked documents and key insiders say otherwise. Describes the clean-up of plutonium and uranium on the Maralinga sites of Taranaki, TM and Wewak, following the recommendations of the Royal Commission into British Nuclear Tests in Australia in 1984; author was a nuclear engineer and the key person on the project from 1993 until his removal in January 1988; Parkinson's work as a consultant to Maralinga Tjarutja; discusses the future and wonders when the land will be finally handed back to the Traditional Owners
