: After the Bomb Nagasaki-Return Journey

Ludovic Kennedy introduces the first of five programmes this week to mark the 40th anniversary of the atomic bomb being dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Tonight:
Nagasaki - Return Journey Early in August 1945 the Second World War came to an end with the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in Japan. Forty years later two Britons return to Nagasaki, the city they saw destroyed. Leonard Cheshire, yc, the legendary bomber pilot, was Britain's representative on the American atomic bombing mission to Nagasaki. He is still convinced that the atom bomb dropped on Nagasaki was a necessary end to the war and is 'the price that's been paid for the removal of the scourge of world war from our earth'.
Geoffrey Sherring was a British prisoner-of-war in a camp only a mile from the centre of the A-bomb explosion. Although he only just escaped death, he welcomed the bomb: 'Here at last our friends had a weapon that might release us without being killed.'
But the people of Nagasaki remain certain that the atom bombing of their city can never be justified, and that even to possess nuclear weapons is wrong. For them, suffering and death was too high a price to pay for peace. Film cameraman IAN STONE

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
