Hiroshima

Show Summary

Hiroshima is a 2005 BBC TV Documentary narrated by John Hurt. Through dramatic reenactments and interviews this documentary tells the story of one of the most defining moments in the 20th Century, the dropping of the atomic bomb. The recreations give viewers the unique ability to witness events as they unfold. The film portrays everything from the testing of the bomb in New Mexico to the devastating aftermath on the streets of Hiroshima. The dropping of the bomb segment is especially riveting as it gives a closer look of what actually happened when the bomb made contact. Those used to only seeing the typical mushroom cloud will be awed at the frightening damage that results. The retelling is unbiased as it offers perspectives from both American and Japanese survivors. It portrays the critical decisions in the hand of President Truman and explains the misunderstanding and lack of trust held by both sides.
