Alan Mackinnon (on right in photo) reports from NPT Conference New York -
Yesterday tens of thousands of people filled the streets of New York to demand a world free from nuclear weapons and war. In brilliant sunshine and temperatures of over 30 degrees, the demonstrators from across the world were warmly greeted by local people. The demonstration marks the start of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty Review Conference which starts on Monday 3rd May.

When the secretary of Dunfermline Labour party asked me to participate in a debate on Trident Replacement I gladly accepted. Putting the case in favour of Trident was to be a full time AMICUS official speaking in his personal capacity (Amicus has recently adopted a position of opposition to Trident Replacement). He must be a brave man, I thought. It has proved very difficult to fi nd Labour Party or trade unions fi gures who will publicly argue the case for Trident renewal. Little did I realise that it was me, not my opponent, who was walking into the lion’s den.

While the delegates and non-government organisations at the Non-Proliferation Treaty Review Conference are grappling with issues that concern the very future of our planet, the US media were obsessing about a failed car bomb in Times Square.

"This is the Wartime Broadcasting Service. This country has been attacked with nuclear weapons." In the normally prosaic world of public safety announcements, they were probably the two most chilling sentences ever recorded in readiness for release across Britain's airwaves.
But secret documents reveal for the first time the full text of the warning to be broadcast by the BBC in the event of a nuclear war, show that Whitehall was obsessed as much with the voice that would be used to announce Armageddon as it was with protecting what was left of the British population.
Senior civil servants in charge of drawing up the pre-recorded radio announcement became concerned that only a recognisable broadcaster should be used for fear that an unfamiliar voice would create the impression that Auntie had been "obliterated".
The quandary was deepened when it emerged that the only BBC employee to have been given the appropriate security clearance for the project was a relatively unknown retired newsreader called Hugh Searight. None of the BBC's star broadcasters Ã¯Â¿Â½ Angela Rippon, Michael Parkinson, Frank Bough or Richard Baker Ã¯Â¿Â½ were judged to have been checked to the required level. The apocalyptic tussle between the Beeb and three Whitehall departments in 1973 and 1974 is detailed in documents released at the National Archives in Kew, west London.
