Thorium, the Far Side of Nuclear Power (2016)

Thorium, la face gâchée du nucléaire (original title)
Ever heard of the Thorium molten salt reactor? That's hardly surprising, as for 70 years, it has been inexplicably kept under wraps by the nuclear industry, despite the fact it could revolutionise energy production.

Storyline

Ever heard of the Thorium molten salt reactor? That's hardly surprising, as for 70 years, it has been inexplicably kept under wraps by the nuclear industry, despite the fact it could revolutionise energy production. It offers the promise of nuclear energy without waste and without danger. The "green atom": fact or fiction? Research that was dropped without explanation in 1973, has now become a topic of lively discussion...

Unexpectedly well rounded documentary about Thorium and MSR (Molten Salt Reactors)
25 September 2016 | by AnybodyMustermannSee all my reviews

Unexpectedly well rounded discussion about Thorium and MSR (Molten Salt Reactors).

Covers a lot: history, technology, politics, advantages, disadvantages, reasons why not in use today.

I was left very impressed. Did not expect to stumble on such a well researched and complete documentary about Thorium/MSR on TV. I liked this more than Pandoras' Promise, even though I hate it when they translate people who speak English into German/French.

Would recommend this to both someone who has no prior knowledge of the subject as well as to people who've already seen a lot about the topic. I've personally seen lots of videos on the topic, but still learned some things which I had not known at all in this documentary.
