Catalyst: Radiation Fallout – How Japan is still faced with the consequences of the Fukushima nuclear disaster. On 11 March 2011, a 9-meter-high tsunami wave, triggered by the Great Tōhoku Earthquake, slammed into Japan’s eastern coast. The consequent meltdown of the Fukushima Daini Nuclear Power Plant brought the added risk of radioactive fallout to the already desperate humanitarian disaster. For the three years since, Japanese authorities and civilian groups have been struggling to clean up the environmental damage caused by this catastrophic fallout of radioactive material. Mark Horstman travels to Fukushima Prefecture in Japan to discover where the radioactive fallout has spread since the nuclear accident.
