Sky Atlantic’s Chernobyl, the series that tells the story of the world’s most deadly nuclear disaster, has generated a huge buzz. Described as ‘staggering’, ‘unmissable’ and ‘enthralling’ the five-part mini-series delves into the true story of the 1986 catastrophe, highlighting the heroism of employees, rescue workers and engineers but also conspiracy and cowardice at the highest levels. In doing so it asks uncomfortable questions about mankind’s response to its own failure and about the power of the state.
The complete Chernobyl series on Blu-ray. The complete five-part series from Acorn Media International.
