For those interested, there's a great book out recently on this by Adam Higginbotham. Called Midnight in Chernobyl: The Untold Story of the World's Greatest Nuclear Disaster.

Expect a huge amount of sensationalism and exaggeration of the facts.
I don't hold out for much accuracy in this.

There is a interesting video on YouTube I posted in the YouTube must see thread a while back where they are walking around in one of the decommissioned reactor houses, damn interesting to see I tell you.

Quite a few of these around. I remember a vid where they walked through the other reactor units into a massive room that houses the fuel rods and the cooling pools etc.
