Climate Change: How Did We Get Here?

Living Planet: Nuclear, post-Fukushima

Seven years on from Fukushima, we look at Japan's controversial efforts to send evacuees home, and battles raging in France and the UK over where to store nuclear waste. And we ask if, for all this, there's still a place for CO2-free atomic energy in a world threatened by climate change?
