We commemorate the 60th anniversary of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki – the only use of nuclear weapons against a civilian population in wartime. We’ll feature an interview about a new documentary called Original Child Bomb about the real impacts of the bombing and how they were covered up for so many years. Also we’ll air The Road from Hiroshima, an award-winning dramatic production by Marc Kaminsky based on survivor testimony from Hiroshima and Nagasaki. And from exile in Southern California, we’ll have the Knight Report.
