HiroshimaTV-14Closed Captioning

Open iTunes to preview or buy TV shows.


It was the defining moment of the 20th Century — the scientific, technological, military, and political gamble of the world's first atomic attack. This drama-documentary shows what it is like to live through a nuclear explosion, millisecond by millisecond. The action takes viewers into the room 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 actions and minds of people who were making history. Special effects recreate the reality of the mission, and archive film replays the horrific aftermath.

It's remarkable how the first reviewer fails to grasp the obvious

Of course it's barbaric. This is why this documentary was made. So a new generation can learn that this event must never be repeated.

excellent accounts

I really enjoyed this documentary and feel that it really shed a light to the magnitude of the Atom Bombs used on Japan.

Too much "dramatic recreation"

It's an important topic but, sadly, it's couched in bad "dramatic re-enactments" for entertainment. The history of this event deserves better. By purchasing 'docu-dramas' you only encourage more of this drivel so, to my eyes, it's best to move past this.
