Abstract:

Chernobyl has come to mean "disaster" and cover-up"; ironically, in Russian it means "wormwood". This program is the result of investigations by the Japanese, who have the most experience in the after-effects of nuclear destruction. It provides on-site photography of the blast site and of people and areas affected, and interviews with victims, medical personnel who treated them, physicists, and politicians who used the event, according to their position and ambition, to cover up, whip up or soothe hysteria, or to grope for information. Experts have concluded that the accident will cause an additional 20,000 to 200,000 cancer deaths in western Europe in the next 30 years.
