This PBS Home Video presentation is riveting. It really puts you back in time to early 1979, when the Three Mile Island Nuclear Plant in Pennsylvania survived the worst accident of its kind in U.S. history.

The behind-the-scenes footage within the plant itself (and in surrounding neighborhoods) is as good as having a time machine, with its settings focused on March 1979. We watch the near-tragedy unfold, step-by-step and day-by-day, including plentiful footage of Pennsylvania Governor Dick Thornburgh as he deals with the crisis at hand.

It's chilling and frightening (even today) to think of what MIGHT have occurred had the runaway nuclear reactor not been brought under control. And this video is the best way you could ever possibly re-live those numbing events.

Highly recommended.
