A profile of Walter Marshall , one of the major figures in the development of Britain's nuclear power industry.
A boffin-turned-power boss, Marshall was rewarded with a peerage by the Conservatives, but was sacked, over the course of 30 years in the public arena, by both Labourand Tory governments. In this programme he tells Richard Lindley how his nuclear ambitions clashed with Mrs Thatcher 's privatisation plans.
In the 70s and 80s Marshall was in the background as many major decisions were made. He was chairman of the Central Electricity Generating Board duringthe 1984-85 miners' strike, which he describes as his finest hour.
He continued to promote nuclear power and argued vociferously against anti-nuclear campaigners, whom he now admits he failed to understand.
Ironically, he now works at Lloyds - insuring nuclear power stations.
