It's been 25 years since disaster struck the Chernobly nuclear power plant deep in the former Soviet Union. Radioactiave fallout from the accident created a "dead zone" around the reactor, an area of almost 1,100 square miles too contaminated to be safely inhabited by humans. Everyone living in the zone was evacuated and relocated by governmant order. A no-person's land of our own making was created and left to its own devices. In the interim, something remarkable has happened - the resurrection of a post nuclear Eden, populated by beaver, bison, horses, birds, fish and falcons - and ruled by wolves.
Scientists are now entering the area to discover how this thriving wildlife is coping with the high radiation - and discovering answers to their questions that they never expected. This is a one hour long PBS documentary .
