Pandora's Box - Episode 6 (final episode) - A is For Atom
"An insight into the history of nuclear power. In the 1950s scientists and politicians thought they could create a different world with a limitless source of nuclear energy.

Then came the disasters of Three Mile Island and Chernobyl which changed views on the safety of this new technology."
