CHERNOBYL & FUKUSHIMA: NA LEASANAN (CHERNOBYL & FUKUSHIMA: THE LESSONS)

Chernobyl – 30 years ago.  A nuclear reactor exploded, spewing out massive quantities of radiation into the atmosphere.  Within days the pollution had spread across Europe.

Living on land contaminated with radioactivity would be a life changing ordeal for the people of Belarus … but also for the Sami reindeer herders of Central Norway … and even the Gaels of the distant Hebrides.

Five years ago there was a melt-down at the Fukushima reactor – and thousands of Japanese found their homes, fields and farms irradiated, just as had happened in Europe.

This international documentary – filmed in Belarus, Japan, the lands of Norway’s Sami reindeer herders, and in the Outer Hebrides – poses the question: What lessons have we learned?
