In 1946, the U.S. War Department produced a twelve-minute film about the atomic bomb as part of the Army-Navy Screen Magazine, called “A Tale of Two Cities”. The two cities were, of course, the devastated Japanese municipalities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The film begins with the Trinity test in the New Mexico desert in July 1945, noting that on that day, “the atomic age was born.” It then takes viewers on a tour of the ruins of the two devastated cities. Twenty years later in 1968, famed American filmmaker Eric Barnouw learned that a great deal of the footage in the movie was shot by Japanese filmmaker, Akira Iwasaki, who visited Hiroshima and Nagasaki to film the immediate aftermath of the bombings. The U.S military at first forced Iwasaki to halt filming but then ordered him to continue.

The footage was suppressed for decades before Barnouw received a letter from an environmentalist named Lucy Lemann alerting him to the existence of the material. Barnouw obtained the footage from the National Archives and then the footage down to this short film. It remains one of the most chilling documents from the atomic bombings.

This film is part of the Periscope Film LLC archive, one of the largest historic military, transportation, and aviation stock footage collections in the USA. Entirely film backed, this material is available for licensing in 24p HD. For more information visit http://www.PeriscopeFilm.com

    Nice to see some open lively genuine debate on this. May the best argument win

    I was toying with the idea of posting the Mathis piece myself. We will never really know but there are theories the Japanese Shinto royal family, (complete with ark of the covenant, sacrifice pole and temple of solomon, wanted the Christian areas of those two towns fire bombed because they were predominantly christian.

    Tests run on survivors don’t show DNA damage from radiation.

      I suppose that it makes sense D’, as in we can’t surrender unless we get a catastrophic and catalysing event like a new Pearl Harbour, otherwise we will appear weak and cowardly.” How about you say what you need and we’ll supply something that will suit us both”. Deal done.
      I,ve seen no real evidence of this mind, but when dealing with our glorious leaders, you have to think in mysterious ways,
