Post-war treasure hunt gone wrong!

This radio broadcast was pretty interesting. The era of film the Anthropocene broadcast focused on post-war action/treasure movies. It’s strange to see the transition of this genre evolve into a cold war race. The movies seemed to move away from gold and diamonds to uranium. From that point movies had an “ulterior motive” esc’ tone from the audio. It was interesting to see they included coral reefs as a focal point for one of the films. Coral bleaching to me seems like a generally recent concern, but clearly I was wrong because there were movies in the 50’s pointing out the concerns of coral disappearing.
