Electricity, Nuclear Power and Nuclear Waste

Synopsis
Recording of a lecture given by Lord Marshall, chairman of the CEGB, at Eton College in April 1986. Giving his point of view he argues that public apprehension about the radiation risks from nuclear waste is unjustified. Using samples of nuclear waste he demonstrates how these, with the exception of high-level waste, pose a smaller potential health risk than the radioactivity levels found in the normal garden, which contains naturally radioactive elements such as potassiumm, thorium and uranium.
