This was a silent video about the development of the Hanford Site in Washington state, which appears to have been produced by the U.S. government at or near the end of World War II. This is part one of three; all three comprise about a 90 minute presentation.
Apparently it was shown at a public presentation in the Richland / Kennewick / Pasco area, with local historians and experts speaking to provide context. This video combines a copy of the original silent film (held at Washington State University's Tri-Cities campus) with audio from film of that 1990s presentation (held at the WSU Libraries' Manuscripts, Archives, and Special Collections in Pullman).
During the first few minutes there are a few 20 second patches of silence, as there is no audio to match the first few minutes of video.
