Here's a great, personable talk from Richard Feynman for anyone who has ever wanted a first-hand account of being a part of the Manhattan Project. Part 4, on censorship there, is particularly funny, with the quote:
"The trouble with playing a trick on a highly intelligent man like Mr. Teller, is the time that it takes him to figure out, from the moment that he sees there's something wrong, till he understands exactly what happens, is too damn small to get any pleasure."
Or, in part 8:
"One of my diseases, one of my things in life is: anything secret I try to undo."
