- The "Decommissioning Fukushima" series documents the unprecedented task of decommissioning the three reactors that suffered core meltdowns at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station. The Japanese government says the process will take up to 40 years, but the schedule has already been revised five times as key tasks have been postponed. Meanwhile, people are returning to homes in surrounding areas, but residents and the government are arguing about how to dispose of huge amounts of radioactive waste resulting from the cleanup. The latest documentary in the series uses footage shot by NHK to look back at the 10 years since the nuclear accident, and ahead to Fukushima's future.
