'four channels glowing'
Variable edition of 6
A piece about the Windscale fire of 1957. The texts come from those involved with the site. Politicians who gave irresponsible orders to generate ever-more power. Scientists developing the technology. Site managers who dealt with events on the ground and averted a full-scale disaster. I grew up in north-west England and events at the site (renamed Sellafield in 1981) were a regular feature of local news reporting.
