THE DAY THEY DROPPED THE BOMB – ITV & SMITHSONIAN
We have just completed work on ‘THE DAY THEY DROPPED THE BOMB’, a unique film for ITV and Smithsonian channel, about the first atomic bomb that was dropped on Hiroshima on August 6 1945.
The dropping of the Atomic bomb also launched the Nuclear age, shaping all of our lives and changing the world for ever. The film has tracked down the people who made the bomb, the people who dropped the bomb, and the people who were in Hiroshima – some less than half a mile from ground zero -when the bomb fell on their city. Many of the witnesses are in their 90s and this will be the last time they will be able to tell their extraordinary stories.
he Day They Dropped The Bomb is told through witness recollections, rare archive film and photographs shot at the time. The documentary will be broadcast for the 70th anniversary of Hiroshima next year in 2015 by ITV and in America by the Smithsonian Channel.
