Nuclear Energy Post Fukushima

Is Japan right to switch reactors back on at its nuclear power stations seven years after a earthquake and tsunami caused the worst nuclear accident in the country’s history?

Presenter Manuela Saragosa puts the question to nuclear sceptic Arjun Makhijani, president of the Institute for Energy and Environmental Research, and to Jonathan Cobb of the World Nuclear Association. Also in the programme, the BBC’s Roger Hearing navigates the paddy fields surrounding the devastated reactors to discover how farmers in the area are dealing with the accident’s radioactive legacy – not to mention customers’ overblown fears of it.
