The new documentary Countdown to Zero warns of an impending global nuclear disaster.
It says there are more that 20,000 nuclear warheads in the world and many of them went missing after the Cold War.
The documentary explains how outfits such as al-Qaeda could get their hands on a weapon of mass destruction and why Iran and North Korea could trigger a nuclear confrontation with the West.

The only way to avoid a global tragedy, according to the film, is to eliminate nuclear weapons altogether.
