Overview

Venture into the White House where the defining event of the 20th century was set into motion, step aboard the Enola Gay to fly that fateful mission that would forever change the course of human history, and walk the streets of Hiroshima to experience just what it would be like to live through an atomic attack in a dramatic documentary that takes viewers into the volatile core of nuclear technology. The test explosion in New Mexico provided the American government with precisely the results they needed to gain an advantage in the war, but despite the multi-tiered gamble of dropping the first atomic bomb, no one could have anticipated the ferocious power that would be unleashed upon the tiny island nation of Japan. Now viewers can literally plummet to Earth inside the "Little Boy" to find out exactly what happens in a nuclear blast from the inside out.
