From the CERN foundation to the questions

November 24th, 2022

Lew Kowarski is the central character of this edited video of RTS and Ciné-Journal archives. Kowarski, a French manager of Russian origin at CERN, summarizes the whole idea of CERN in this excerpt from a December 1, 1969 broadcast "En direct avec" produced by Jean-Marcel Schorderet and by the journalists Roger Nordmann and Roland Bahy.

For the purposes of this montage, we used images of CERN taken from the RTS report on the "50 years of CERN" in 2004.

In this 1954 archive, we can see several sequences of the creation of the European Center for Nuclear Research with an excerpt from the Ciné-Journal Suisse which shows the construction site as well as Félix Bloch, Swiss Nobel Prize in Physics and Director General of CERN, during the signing of the document which officializes the creation of the center in Geneva with the Swiss Nobel Prize in Physics Félix Bloch.

We can also see extracts of the CERN premises in the 1970s with physicists installed in the control room of the particle gas pedal and then sequences from the 1980s and 1990s with images of the construction site of the particle gas pedal.

You can ask us for the sources and precise dates of all these images from the anniversary special by sending us an e-mail request to genevemonde@gmail.com.
