""Who is the sane one,"" asked the philosopher Bertrand Russell, ""the man who cracks up because of Hiroshima, or the rest of us who remain unaffected by it?""

He pleaded not guilty by virtue of insanity - Colin Davis's biographical play stars Peter Whitman as Claude Eatherly, Peter Marinker as the Writer, Bob Sherman as Colonel Tibbetts, Serretta Wilons as Eatherly's Woman, Bill Wallis as Dr McElroy and Nigel Anthony as Dr Constantine.
