Atomic Bomb Dropped On Hiroshima (1945)

On August 6th, 1945, a weapon unlike any other before was unleashed on the Japanese city of Hiroshima in a moment that changed the world forever: the dropping of the atomic bomb. Afterwards, a team of scientists and experts from the Manhattan Project was ordered by President Truman to investigate what really happened when the atomic bomb exploded over Hiroshima. A National Geographic documentary, 24 Hours After Hiroshima, explores the incredible science behind the atomic mission as well as the events that took place moment by moment on that fateful day. (Viewer discretion advised.)

Much of the footage seen in 24 Hours After Hiroshima came from Trinity & Beyond – The Atomic Bomb Movie. (Both of these are available at Amazon.)
