Summary
In an era of dirty bombs and nuke-hungry rogue nations, images of the horror visited upon Japanese cities at the end of World War II serve as reminders of humanity's ongoing gamble. This program presents numerous eyewitness accounts from the Hiroshima and Nagasaki attacks, creating an on-the-ground picture of the world's first-and hopefully last-instance of nuclear warfare. Interviewees include Kiyoko Imori, the only survivor from her obliterated elementary school, and Sakue Shimohira, who recalls choosing at age ten between "the courage to die and the courage to live." U.S. servicemen who carried out the bombing missions, such as Enola Gay navigator Theodore Van Kirk and weapons test officer Morris Jeppson, are also featured. (87 minutes)
