Three Mile Island Revisited
DVD1993 30 Minutes
Challenges the claim of the nuclear industry that "no one died" from the partial meltdown in 1979, America's worst nuclear disaster.
Like the USA, the British Government has recently approved the first new nuclear power plant in 32 years, heralding a “Nuclear Renaissance”. But that was before the Fukushima accident in Japan renewed a fierce public debate over the safety and viability of nuclear power.
This documentary directly challenges the claim of the nuclear industry and the government that "no one died" from the partial meltdown of the Three Mile Island nuclear power plant in 1979, America's worst nuclear disaster.
Through the testimony of area residents and scientists, the documentary represents compelling evidence that cancer deaths and birth defects increased in the area surrounding the Pennsylvania plant.
The film reveals that the utility which owns the nuclear plant has been quietly awarding damages to hundreds of local residents who have brought suits, despite its insistence that no one was harmed.
Produced by an award-winning investigative reporter and an Emmy Award-winning TV cameraman, Three-Mile Island Revisited digs into a nightmare that has received little attention from mainstream media.
"Makes a chilling case that people did die as a result of Three Mile Island and that...the illness and the dying continues."
