Atomic Physics wasn't intended for theatrical release, but the importance of its subject matter earned the film several trade-paper reviews. Divided into five portions, the film details the history of atomic science, beginning with the early-19th-century theories of John Dalton and culminating with the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Dr. Cockroft of the British Research on Atomic Energy and Professor Albert Einstein of Princeton University are well represented with excerpts from their public speeches. No effort is made to "hoke up" the film with false entertainment values; this is purely an academic exercise. Atomic Physics was put together by Gaumont British International.
