To say Sky/HBO’s new mini-series Chernobyl is thought-provoking would be like describing Usain Bolt as quite a fast runner, or the water under the Antarctic sea ice as a bit chilly. This is TV that doesn’t just get you thinking, it stops you sleeping. The catastrophic disaster that began with an explosion at around 01:15 at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in Soviet Ukraine on 26 April 1986, is graphically played out over the course of five one-hour episodes. By the end of the third episode I was craving something a little lighter: re-watching the Towering Inferno maybe or a double helping of Luther.
