Synopsis: To mark the second anniversary of the Fukushima nuclear disaster in Japan we listen to a documentary written and narrated by Dave Sweeney and produced by Jessie Boylan, compiled of recordings and interviews that Dave collected on his visit to the region in August 2012. To give an insight into life in Fukushima today and to highlight the ongoing human and environmental impacts from this nuclear disaster, we hear from a range of local and international voices who are trying to offer support, and to pick up the pieces of the worst nuclear disaster since the 1986 Chernobyl meltdown.
