Chernobyl: The Lost Tapes | James Jones Discussed How He Got Access [Exclusive Interview]

Emmy Award winning James Jones brings us just a few of the touching stories in Chernobyl: The Lost Tapes. Stories narrated by the victims themselves along with found footage ever seen before.

The Synopsis 

Thirty-six years after the Chernobyl nuclear reactor exploded in Soviet Ukraine, newly uncovered archival footage and recorded interviews with those who were present paint an emotional and gripping portrait of the extent and gravity of the disaster and the lengths to which the Soviet government went to cover up the incident, including the soldiers sent in to “liquidate” the damage. CHERNOBYL: THE LOST TAPES is the full, unvarnished true story of what happened in one of the least understood tragedies of the twentieth century.
