Frontline - S30E06 - Nuclear Aftershocks (2012)PBS
Report Abuse/Infringement 1 Seeds 0 Leechers555.85 MB
Banned from speaking to the media some of the TEPCO Workers that stayed behind to fight the Fukushima-Daichi plant and prevent total meltdown are interviewed in this investigative report by PBS Frontline. We are shown images from the frontline as workers- stuck inside the plant and surrounded by deadly radioactive remnants- worked tirelessly and with little regard for their own well being to do what was necessary. There are also interviews with people from the US (who were monitoring the situation), Japanese government, and Army (one of the dudes that flew the helicopters that was dropping water onto the reactor from above), and citizens caught in the evacuation zone. Basically, it's a film about how decisions were made. A request for Loni.
PLEASE SEED AND ENJOY!!!

See my note on the Slavery By Another Name comments about Arne Gunderson at Fairewinds Associates.
You will see my donation as Lon P.

The link is for the item I would like to view. It plays for me as audio but the video drops out due to my poor bandwidth.
But the earlier prog. above contained here on Indian Point (which may also cover Vermont Yankee) is beneficial and worthwhile.
It's a huge issue and given scant attention relative to the magnitude of the event for humanity.

The beginning sounds way different and the title is different as well. Admittedly I did not see any of the images when listening to the stream. I do want to hear this about the NYC evacuation issues. The test for me would be to listen to the end.
Are there dates to compare with the PBS site? It's not my purpose to create any contention about this. I fully expect to request that my library get the episode of Frontline released as dvd.

they must have made 2 episodes together with overlap then, cause they are interviewing the exact same people (including citizens).

same episode, aired twice, under two different names (by the looks of it), either that...or the upload is named wrong, and its actually this episode.

I just viewed the whole torrent. It is different.
The one I heard (with no video) from the Frontline site keyed on different issues and was narrated by the Frontline guy whom I thought of while listening to the documentary as the "ho-hum Frontline guy." It's the voice you usually hear on these: very flat and matter-of-fact.
The torrent is narrated by the author of the piece. While there are various touchpoints what made me notice that these are definitely distinct and different was the search by one individual for members of his family, several of which were never found. That ended the "what really happened" Frontline episode available online.
The torrent is hugely important. But so is the reporting Grep palast in Vulture's Picnic on this issue. The book is available online. While I don't know how it is searchable, in discussion of the diesel generators, use the phrase "snap, crackle and pop." This was used to describe tests of backup turbines and the axle shear failure years before these units failed in Japan. Describing the disaster at Fukushima as an "accident" is, for this reason, inaccurate.

One of the news shows I listen to had a piece on a new dvd today:
That's at the Center For Investigative Reporting.
It will be released as DVD and was aired on Al Jazeera. A transcript is included at the link above.
