Frequently bought together
Based on powerful real-life events, 'Chernobyl' dramatizes the story of one of the worst man-made catastrophes in history, the Ukraine nuclear plant disaster of April 1986. This five-part miniseries recounts the remarkable stories of the heroes who fought and fell to save Europe from an unimaginable disaster. Jared Harris portrays Valery Legasov, the Soviet scientist chosen by the Kremlin to investigate the accident to reveal how and why it happened. 'Chernobyl' tells a tale of lies and cowardice, of courage and conviction, and of human failure and human nobility.
From the manufacturer
It was one of the worst man-made catastrophes in history. On April 26, 1986, the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in the Soviet Union suffered a massive explosion that released radioactive material across Belarus, Russia and Ukraine, and as far as Scandinavia and western Europe. This gripping and powerful five-part miniseries follows the tragedy from the moment of the early-morning explosion through the chaos and loss of life in the ensuing days, weeks and months. The cast includes Jared Harris, Stellan Skarsgard and Emily Watson.

Picture quality (blu-ray) is good although it's not a demonstration product since many of the scenes are in dark interiors of hospitals and damaged power stations.
The screen play succeeds in capturing interest (partly by swapping to and from contemporary and the time of the accident) both in the attractiveness of the characters, the analysis of the accident, and the enormous effort made by the Soviet government to preserve both life and habitat.
I enjoyed this series and recommend it.
