A Dramatized Documentary Exploring the Humanity and the Horror of the First Atomic Attack.

At 8:15 on August 6, 1945, the first atomic bomb was dropped over the Japanese city of Hiroshima. A scientific, technological, military and political gamble, the attack proved to be the defining moment of the 20th century.

Set in the weeks from the first test explosion in New Mexico to the eventual dropping of the bomb, Hiroshima takes viewers into the room where the crucial political decisions were made; on board the Enola Gay on her fateful journey and even inside the bomb as it explodes.

On the streets of Hiroshima, we witness the devastation. Nearly 100,000 people were killed instantly and those who managed to survive - in spite of the lethal heat blast, the colossal shockwave and the invisible effects of gamma radiation - tell stories of a living nightmare.

Using archive footage, state-of-the-art visual techniques and dramatic reconstructions based on unprecedented access to protagonists and witnesses, Hiroshima places the dropping of the bomb in its historical and political context and unflinchingly depicts the effects of the nuclear explosion.
