節目介紹 Introduction

二戰後75年,你還記得那些震撼的歷史嗎?都在History歷史頻道- 《廣島和長崎:75年後》 (Hiroshima and Nagasaki: 75 Years Later)

1945年8月6日,這天美國的B-29超級堡壘轟炸機在廣島投下一顆原子彈。三天後,另一架B-29在長崎投下了第二顆。這場轟炸是戰爭史上人類唯一一次動用核武,死傷慘重,影響深遠。《歷史頻道》將在全球播出這一道扣人心弦的歷史傷痕,取自美日兩國逾20小時的檔案解密,以及當年耆老的切身感言,本片從二戰美國人和日本人的觀點雙雙切入,探索戰況如何升溫為原子彈戰爭、爆炸事件的始末和後果。全片僅以少量旁白穿插,而大量運用戰爭倖存者、參戰軍人的錄音檔作為敘事主軸,與彼得傑克森的紀錄片《他們不再老去》可謂異曲同工。

August 6, 1945, an American B-29 bomber dropped an atomic bomb on Hiroshima. Three days later, another American B-29 dropped a second atomic bomb on Nagasaki. This is the only time nuclear weapons have been used in warfare. The casualties and stakes were massive from the bombings. In August, 2020, on the 75th anniversary of the bombings, HISTORY will air on channels all over the world a gripping account of this chapter of history, drawn from 20+ hours of declassified U.S. and Japanese archival. This film will explore, in the words of those who lived it, the ramp up to the bombing missions, the bombings, and the aftermath, from the perspective of Americans and Japanese who lived it. Similiar to Peter Jackson's "They Shall Not Grow Old", there is light or spare narration throughout the film, and the story is driven mostly by audio interviews of survivors and participants.
