Hiroshima

Recapture the horror and humanity of the first atomic bomb ever to target a human population.

It was the defining moment of the 20th century – the scientific, technological, military and political gamble of the world’s first atomic attack. On 6 August, 1945, an American mission killed 200,000 people in the Japanese city of Hiroshima and called a halt to a war that had gripped the world for six years. This is the dramatic story of the attack.

Set in the three weeks from the first test explosion in New Mexico to the eventual dropping of the bomb, the action takes viewers into the rooms where the crucial political decisions are made; on board the Enola Gay on her fateful voyage; inside the bomb as it explodes; and on the streets of Hiroshima when disaster strikes.

Parallel storylines interweave, unfolding the action from both US and Japanese perspectives, and revealing the tensions and conflicts in the movements and minds of people who were making history. Special effects recreate the reality of the mission - even going inside the workings of the bomb - and archive film replays the horrific aftermath, hour by hour, minute by minute.
