88 Hours: The Fukushima Nuclear Meltdown

Synopsis
March 11, 2011, 2:46 pm. One of the largest earthquakes in Japanese history hits eastern Japan. A gigantic tsunami caused by this earthquake triggered a complete power outage at the nuclear power station in Fukushima, leading to three simultaneous meltdowns. Eighty-eight hours later, on March 15, 7 am, large amounts of radioactive material are released from reactor No.2, resulting in a Level 7 nuclear accident, the highest class. Five years have passed, and details of the situation at that time have now emerged through various investigations and exclusive interviews with more than 500 people who were involved. What actually happened at ground zero? Through re-enactments and interviews, viewers will witness for the first time the complete picture of the nuclear accident in Fukushima during those fateful first 88 hours.
