Sombre but brilliant performance - don't miss
14 March 2009 | by (London, UK) – See all my reviews

This program, broadcast some time ago, showed the events as they are know on the disastrous night in Chernobyl Russia on 26th April 1986

This event that shocked the World, and even now still effects in many ways the lives of so many people, is brilliantly portrayed by a small cast of actors, all of whom perform excellently.

Arguably however, it is Adrian Edumondson who turns in a frankly superb role as the professor Legasov trying in vain to control what is obviously becoming one of the Worlds greatest disasters.

It's difficult to watch this and not be touched by the ultimate real life bravery of a handful of men and women, most of whom died as a direct result of what happened.

If you get the chance to see it, don't turn it down.
