Nuclear Waste: The Greenpeace Protest

Synopsis
Britain continues to dump drums of radioactive waste at sea despite the fact that Germany and the United States have abandoned this form of disposal in the face of growing criticism from scientists and environmentalists. Looks at the arguments and assurances given by the United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority and the non-violent campaigns by the environmental group Greenpeace attempting to stop what many feel is unjustifiable pollution of the oceans.
