Chernobyl: The Lost Tapes

This arresting and hopefully cautionary documentary about the Chernobyl disaster picked up two BAFTA TV nominations for its gripping and shocking reconstruction of this earth-shattering historical event. Masterfully directed by British filmmaker James Jones, this gripping retelling was co-produced by the UK’s Sky Studios and Top Hat Productions.



Over three decades since the Chernobyl nuclear reactor exploded in Ukraine, this tense and insightful documentary attempts to reconstruct the disaster via newly found archival footage and interviews with those present. This affecting portrait of an unprecedented catastrophe also delves into the cover-up attempts by those in power at the time.
