On twenty sixth April 1986 the nuclear reactor of the fourth unit of the V. I. Lenin power-station at Chernobyl exploded. It used to be a disaster of old proportions - many thousands suffered, and endured to endure, from the results. To chronicle this catastrophe and its aftermath, Piers Paul learn interviewed the engineers and operators who have been carrying out the fateful attempt at the evening of twenty fifth April; he talked to the director of the power-station, serving a ten-year sentence for negligence; and he went to the hitherto top-secret institutes as soon as run by means of Beria's Ministry for Medium computer construction - the Kurchatov Institute, Moscow's clinic No 6, and the once-closed urban of Obninsk.
