Radioactivity expert Robert Maxwell on the future of Chernobyl

More than three decades after the Chernobyl disaster, the Ukrainian town made headlines all over the world again after entertainment giant HBO released a five-part mini-series about the nuclear catastrophe.

The Chernobyl series was such a hit it brought an unprecedented wave of visitors to the town’s exclusion zone, with some social media influencers publishing sexy images taken on the site.

6PR producer and WAtoday photojournalist Marta Pascual Juanola joins Jane in the studio to share her experience visiting Chernobyl in October 2018.

Contemporary archaeologist, radiation and Chernobyl expert Robert Maxwell also joins the conversation to talk about the history of the catastrophe and the future of its ground zero.
