Open to: Academic | Alumni | Public | Student
Admission: £8 / £6 concessions
Ticketing: Pre-booking essential

At the end of World War II, nuclear was heralded as a cheap energy to underpin prosperity and reconstruction in a war-damaged world. But, the 1986 Chernobyl disaster knocked this once championed technology from favour. Ecological worries around carbon-based energy have set nuclear up for a rebrand, but then came Fukushima and new global anxieties. Where next for nuclear power, and how does its representation in film shape the public debate?

Panel discussion chaired by Quentin Cooper (Radio 4,The Material World), with Paul Dorfman (Founder of the Nuclear Consulting Group), Simon Roberts (Energy specialist in Arup’s Foresight, Innovation and Incubator group), and Kirsty Alexander (Head of Communications, Nuclear Industry Association).
