Fukushima: Witnesses to a Nuclear Disaster

A serious and unprecedented accident occurred at Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station. Determined to collect only confirmed information and afraid of causing a panic, the government disclosed inadequate information to local residents, which created great confusion. 150,000 people were forced to seek shelter elsewhere, causing some to lose their lives. Only now, one year on, is the true story starting to be revealed. This program reconstructs the events immediately after the accident based on the first-hand accounts of residents, medical personnel, firefighters, local government officials, politicians, and TEPCO representatives.
