: Children of the Ashes

The survivors of Hiroshima
A vivid and compelling film by the German-born author Robert Jungk of the rebirth of the city of Hiroshima out of the atomic holocaust of August 1945.
Written by Robert Jungk.

Officially it is now a 'City of Peace' - the bustling modern industrial scene of Hiroshima where sixteen years ago an atomic bomb exploded in the summer sky. Today Hiroshima has been reborn. Into its congested streets are crammed more than half a million hard-working people, newcomers vastly outnumbering the survivors of that hideous day.
What has happened to these survivors? And what sort of place is Hiroshima in 1961? The distinguished author Robert Jungk, who is now an American citizen, visited Hiroshima to write a book about it and at the same time make a film. He spent weeks there among maimed and crippled people who lived through the explosion. He traced the gradual growth of the macabre radiation sickness which even today is killing off some of the survivors.
Ever since his school-days in Berlin, where he was arrested for anti-Nazi activities after the Reichstag fire, Robert Jungk has been a man of strong convictions. Children of the Ashes is a personal statement - about Hiroshima and about the civilisation we live in.

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.
