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?
