Summary:
Low-carbon energy solution, or a ticking time bomb? When the Fukushima Daichi nuclear plant went into meltdown following an earthquake and tsunami in March 2011, the world started to question the safety of nuclear power. In Fukushima - Is Nuclear Power Safe? (Horizon) we ask if such distrust is justified? Jim Al-Khalili, Professor of Theoretical Physics at the University of Surrey, is convinced of the theoretical value of nuclear power. In Fukushima - Is Nuclear Power Safe? (Horizon), he travels to the most important sites in nuclear safety - Fukushima, Chernobyl and new reactors in Finland - to see if nuclear power can ever work as well in practice, when exposed to politics and economics, as it does on paper. Fukushima - Is Nuclear Power Safe? (Horizon) is a BBC science documentary which looks at just how safe our nuclear power resources really are.
