ITV, 10.40PM

Yorkshire Post - YP Magazine - - Television -

On Au­gust 6, 1945 the world changed for­ever, when a ura­nium gun-type atomic bomb (co­de­named Lit­tle Boy) was dropped on the Ja­panese city of Hiroshima by the US Air Force’s Boe­ing B-29 Su­per­fortress Enola Gay. Lit­tle Boy ex­ploded 2,000 feet above the city, de­stroyed five square miles, and even­tu­ally killed in ex­cess of 160,000 peo­ple. This doc­u­men­tary marks the 70th an­niver­sary of the day the world’s first atomic bomb was det­o­nated, and fea­tures an in-depth ac­count of what hap­pened on that tragic day, through rarely seen archive footage and unique in­ter­views with eye­wit­nesses.
