With the recent historic peace summit between North and South Korea showing encouraging progress, and a crucial Donald Trump - Kim Jong Un summit proposed for summer 2018, it has never been more important to understand the history of North Korea's Nuclear Bomb.

How and why did the ‘Hermit Kingdom’ build the bomb, and what is the context of the USA-North Korea relationship?

Charting the roots of the current situation from the Korean War in 1950-53 through to the present, this is the untold story of how North Korea's nuclear arsenal has been developed. From the initial conflict with the USA through assistance from the Soviets during the cold war, through to its recent series of nuclear tests, this special reveals that North Korea also had unlikely sources of help – from Europe through its network of spies, and, crucially, from nuclear armed Pakistan.

Featuring exclusive interviews with the world’s leading experts on North Korean relations and rare archive footage, this documentary provides invaluable context to current events.
