I Used To Wonder...
...about what happened after we dropped the atom bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki to end World War II. I mean I saw pictures and all, but no really graphic " you are there" kind of stuff. So it turns out there really was some real reporting done after the war see it here. Of course this really explosive content was censored at the time. What with the postwar period of martial law (yes, I said martial law) and the genuine fear among the populace about nuclear war...the powers that were were not about to let the real story about the real consequences of nuclear weapons get out.
