Inside Chernobyl Sarcophagus
Chernobyl Unit 4 exploded five years ago this week. The intensely radioactive ruins of the reactor now lie buried in the 'sarcophagus'. Much of it will be radioactive for more than 100,000 years. Also inside the sarcophagus is an elite team of Soviet scientists, working in areas of radiation that would be considered lethal in the west. They are driven by the urgent need to hunt down the 135 tonnes of uranium and plutonium, to discover whether a second accident could happen at
Chernobyl. The Horizon team are the first westerners allowed to film inside the sarcophagus. This is the story of the remarkable scientists dedicating their lives to working there. See panel below. Written and produced by Edward Bnffa Editor Jana Bennett
