Chernobyl: The Lost Tapes
Matt Roush says...
The network that won Emmys for its Chernobyl docudrama returns to the scene of the 1986 nuclear disaster for a revealing and chilling documentary from Emmy-winning director James Jones. Lost Tapes sifts through newly discovered footage and recorded interviews with survivors and witnesses to reveal the extent of the explosion’s damage and how far the Soviet government went to cover up and deny the human and environmental cost. Among those interviewed: a miner, a helicopter pilot, a 10-year-old schoolboy, the wife of a first responder and the Deputy Chief Engineer of the Chernobyl Power Plant.
