In October 1957 a fire was discovered inside Reactor One at Windscale. Until
Chernobyl it was the world's worst reactor disaster. But the fire had one hidden benefit. It stopped the secret and severe contamination of West Cumbria.
Two years before the fire, officials denied that any radioactivity was leaking from the Windscale reactors.
Today, men and women who worked at the site tell Inside Story the truth: that leaks from the reactor severely contaminated the area for many years and subjected local people unknowingly to radiation.
Our Reactor Is on Fire tells, for the first time on television, the chilling story of obsessive secrecy and unsafe technology which ended in atomic disaster.
