This new documentary marks the 70th anniversary of the world's first atomic bomb being dropped over Hiroshima on 6 August, 1945 - a day which changed the course of history.
The Day They Dropped The Bomb provides a minute-by-minute account of what happened on that day, told through the unique insights of the people who were there and rarely-seen archive footage from the time.
Made by award-winning film-maker Leslie Woodhead, who directed acclaimed documentaries The Day Kennedy Died and 9/11: The Day That Changed The World for ITV, and filmed on location in Hiroshima and the United States, this programme features interviews with witnesses including the last surviving member of the flight crew of the Enola Gay plane which dropped the bomb, navigator Dutch Van Kirk, in his final TV interview before he died.
Using rare archive film, news reports and radio bulletins alongside the personal memories of people who were there, the programme relives the events of August 6, casting fresh light on the British and Americans' wartime race to make an atomic bomb ahead of the Nazis and its effect on the Japanese surrender. It also reflects on the debate around the morality of using atom bombs that continues today.
