On April 26th, 1986, reactor four at Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant explodes, sending an enormous radioactive cloud over northern Ukraine and neighboring Belarus. The danger is not immediately communicated and the local population go about their business as usual. After three days, an area the size of England becomes contaminated with radioactive dust, creating a 'zone' of contaminated land. This is the story of the people who dealt with the world's worst nuclear disaster at ground level.

Wow. This documentary was hard to watch. The music was poignant, and the historical footage was intense. But there wasn't quite enough infomration on the subject matter.

This is not a standard documentary. Watching it was more reminecscent of attending a wake than anything else. Filled with lots of pictures, mornful music, remembrances with a light sprinkling of facts.

It is difficult to watch and it's too bad this is the only DVD available from the library on this subject.
