One Year Later, Inside Japans Nuclear Meltdown
10 p.m. EST Tuesday on PBS.
February 28, 2012

In the days after a tsunami crippled Japan's Fukushima power plant almost one year ago, a small group of engineers, soldiers and firemen risked their own lives to prevent a complete nuclear meltdown.

Investigative reporter Dan Edge wanted to find out what it was like for the workers who were inside the Fukushima Dai-ichi plant when the crisis began. His new Frontline documentary chronicles what happened to those plant engineers, as well as what happened to the small corps of workers who entered the power plant in the days after the disaster.

Edge talked to reactor inspectors, Fukushima residents and nuclear scientists in the Japanese government to piece together Inside Japan's Nuclear Meltdown, which premieres at 10 p.m. EST Tuesday on PBS.

Radio broadcast available here just a few minutes from airing on TV for those who can get it

Did not have a chance to watch yet. What was their take on the explosions? Were they described as hydrogen explosions or a nuclear core explosion in Reactor 3?

Nice write up!

I wondered reading this part at the end....

Today, Fukushima is a ghost town.
The reactors are buried under tons of rubble and have reached a state of cold shutdown.

Wow, is that accurate? If so, this is really good news!
