Abstract

The final part of the trilogy explores inside the 30-kilometre exclusion zone surrounding the Chernobyl Power Plant. Evacuated with 24 hours notice after the 1986 melt down, the zone now stands as a symbol of the dangers inherent within the nuclear process. Empty villages strewn with the reminders of the former population are scattered throughout the zone and at its centre is Pripyat, formerly a symbol of the Ukraine's bright new future and now too radioactive to even demolish, its buildings crumbling and littered with the detritus of a fleeing population.
Yet amongst this devastation a few, usually old, people have returned to their homes in the zone for want of anywhere else to go, and make a living from this radioactive and most notorious of locations.
