Channel 5 is releasing a new documentary about the Chernobyl disaster which will be hosted by adventurer Ben Fogle. This documentary will see Ben Fogle explore the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant itself where the explosion happened and live in the surrounding areas and danger zones that were destroyed in the disaster and are still to this day radioactive. The plant exploded on the 26th April 1986 sending massive amounts of radioactive material across Europe. It is the worst nuclear accident in history, even after over 30 years there’s still too much radioactivity in the area for people to be there for long periods of time. Ben will live inside the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone for 7 days, they have even been granted access to film in the power plant and the control room but they can only spend 5 minutes inside the control room, due to radiation safety restrictions.
