The chilling thing about The China Syndrome is that I see it the week before the TMI meltdown - that was so much worst than what happening in the film!!!! But at least they had a containment vessel. I cannot believe someone would build huge reactor without a good containment vessel!

Several TV documentaries are available on VHS such as Chernobyl Nuclear Disaster, Nightline's Chernobyl Plant-Aftermath, and from public television, NOVA: Back to Chernobyl, and Meltdown at Three Mile Island, but there doesn't seem to be anything on DVD.

I think a movie called Silkwood had something to do with nuke plants.Then there's always that made-for-tv movie from a few years ago,called Atomic Twister.Both movies were pretty bad.

chernobyl heart just got nominated for an oscar in the short-documentary category. since it's short that might mean it will be available on the net, somewhere. might be worth keeping an eye out.

This brings back memories. I lived within the 5 mile evacuation zone of TMI and went away for the weekend when it all first happened. But TMI did have a containment vessel. You are thinking of Chernobal in Russia that did not have any containment. Also, TMI never 'melted down'. There was damage done to the reactor from overheating but nothing ever escaped the containment building.
