Life Experience

First nuclear bomb dropped on a city 75 years ago, 6 August

Two BBC 4 programmes explore this tragedy.  Hiroshima Docudrama, 10 pm Wednesday 5 August, and at 11.30 pm Living in Dread and Promise, the story of nuclear power in the last 70 years.

75 years ago, 6 August, the first nuclear bomb to be dropped on people destroyed the Japanese city of Hiroshima. Thus began 75 years of a handful of countries threatening each other with nuclear annihilation and the wasting of billions of pounds on a weapon that remains an horrendous threat to human life on earth.
