This is a well received and regarded series examining from the Soviet perspective the events at the Chernobyl nuclear power station when Reactor Number 4 was subjected to "safety test" (required for the plants certification, and way overdue).
Picture quality (blu-ray) is good although it's not a demonstration product since many of the scenes are in dark interiors of hospitals and damaged power stations.
The screen play succeeds in capturing interest (partly by swapping to and from contemporary and the time of the accident) both in the attractiveness of the characters, the analysis of the accident, and the enormous effort made by the Soviet government to preserve both life and habitat.
I enjoyed this series and recommend it.
