Understorey: Generations of Nagasaki

Wednesday 10th September / presented by Elizabeth PO’ Adrian Glamorgan

According to Wikileaks, in 2009 the Japanese government did not want US President Obama to apologise for the 1945 atomic bombings.

Understorey explores the psychology of war, peace, forgiveness, remembering and nuclear weapons, as we interview Graham Fox, the son of an Australian POW who was there at Nagasaki on the day 70,000 people were killed; Notre Dame campus minister Tom Gannon, from the town which invented the Fat Man atom bomb and now sports the mushroom cloud on its school basketball court; and Herb Tsuchiya, also from Washington state, a Japanese American whose family once came from Hiroshima, was interned in US camps, and who leaves us with his lifelong message in answer to the baffling questions of identity, trust, nuclear war, and moving on.
