Inside Chernobyl - Documentary

What's it like inside the zone around the Chernobyl accident?  This documentary takes a trip to the actual sites, and shows radiation readings using a geiger counter.  Trips are fairly easy to arrange, through a company called Solo-East, and travelers don't even have to wear special equipment.

The film-maker even meets with some "resettlers" who have moved back to land near the Chernobyl reactor complex.  They also take a trip to Pripyat, the city near the reactor site that was primarily for workers at the plant.  It is an abandoned city where nature is taking it back.
