Program: Frontline

to.pbs.org Coming January 17: FRONTLINE examines the implications of the Fukushima accident for US nuclear safety, and asks how this disaster will affect the future of nuclear energy around the world. It's been almost a year since a devastating earthquake and tsunami crippled Japan's Fukushima Daiichi nuclear complex, leaving the country's once popular energy program in shambles. In response, Germany decided to abandon nuclear energy entirely. Should the US follow suit? FRONTLINE correspondent Miles O'Brien examines the implications of the Fukushima accident for US nuclear safety, and asks how this disaster will affect the future of nuclear energy around the world. In particular, he visits one emerging battleground: The controversial relicensing of the Indian Point nuclear plant, located only 38 miles from Manhattan. What lessons can be learned from the disaster in Japan? Watch on air and online beginning Tuesday, January 17th at 10 pm ET on PBS (check local listings). to.pbs.org
