Between 1946 and 1952, the British Commonwealth Occupation Force had the job of policing the starving population of Hiroshima and destroying the vast Japanese war-machine. Rare footage, photos and eyewitness accounts vividly recreate the atmosphere of post-war Japan and the situation where two former enemies must meet face to face. The program also reveals how many veterans fear they too may be victims of atomic radiation and how successive governments have overlooked the contribution of the 36,000 Australians who served in the force.
(1994, 55 mins) A Film Australia National Interest Program. Produced with the assistance of The Japan Foundation and the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.
