DID YOU KNOW?
HBO's new miniseries, Chernobyl is now the highest rated show of all time on IMDB. With a rating of 9.6, it has already surpassed Game of Thrones which has a rating of 9.4. Chernobyl is a five-part miniseries that will introduce you to a horror story in the guise of a historical docudrama. It's scary enough that it has a touch of realism with how the people deal with denial and deception. That the people in power's worst fears are that of humiliation rather than the death of tens of thousands. The irony of some scenes where people enjoyed watching something that would kill them in the following days. Chernobyl retells the story of the 1986 disaster where it became the world's worst nuclear power plant accident. The accident happened due to the operators doing actions which violated the plant's procedures. An unstable reactor was operated without adequate safety precautions. Which led to the explosion. It is stated that 31 people died within a few weeks of the accident due to the exposure to radiation and thermal burns. In 2018, the United Nations Scientific Committee on the Effects of Atomic Radiation (UNSCEAR) reported that 20,000 people under the age of 18 years had thyroid cancer. The psychological effects of the whole incident also led to a higher number of suicides, alcohol abuse, and apathy.
There are existing Russian documentaries which dives deeper into the whole Chernobyl incident. The Russian Woodpecker is an example of such documentary. This event goes to show how a simple act of a handful of people can cause devastating damage to the whole world.
