BBC series. Surviving disasters. Drama documentary about the 1986 explosion at a Soviet nuclear plant which released four hundred times as much radiation as the Hiroshima bomb. The story is told from the perspective of scientist Valeri Legasov, who committed suicide (in April 1988).

Dramatic episodes and documentary material are combined in order to explore the horror of the devastating nuclear explosion at Chernobyl in 1986.

Do we have to rethink the dangers of radiation? (Horizon episode) According to LLRC: We have never seen such utterly biased reporting in our entire existence. There was not an iota of balance, not the ghost of any attempt to offer a countervailing scientific opinion, not the faintest suggestion that people exposed to Chernobyl fallout had actually been dying or sickening at a rate in excess of the absolutely undeniable. "Nuclear Nightmares" was, as its preliminary media spin suggested, it would be flat out pro-nuclear propaganda.
