Three Mile Island Retrospective

The World

Twenty years after Three Mile Island we look back at the nation’s worst commercial nuclear accident. Using archival materials and interviews with area residents who lived through the accident, Living On Earth’s Terry FitzPatrick reconstructs the days in late March and early April, 1979, that changed the nation’s energy policy. He also looks at whether radiation released during the accident has had lasting health effects on people who live near the plant.
