John Ainslie puts the nuclear attack on Hiroshima in its true historical context - making clear why the use in anger of these weapons of mass destruction were completely unnecessary. Rather, it would seem, much more sinister motives lay behind their use on crowded cities, e.g. looking to gaining the future upper-hand in a post-WW2 world & threatening their use again against other countries.

Eddie McGuire, acclaimed musician and world famous composer, plays a popular Japanese song which was well know to all Japanese, especially children, at the time of the nuclear bombing - a fitting backdrop to meditate on the human cost of these nuclear weapons, which were only a tiny fraction of the strength of the ones ready for launch today. Organised by Scottish CND.
