About this event

The story of the Fukushima disaster is still unfolding. Mark Whitby, Chairman & Design Director at WME and ICE Past-President, tells the story so far having researched publications that include reports from the operatives, publications by scientists, doctors and politicians and the official report of the 'accident' by the Nuclear industry.

It is a story about engineers, their fallibility and how ultimately their resourcefulness narrowly avoided a disaster of unprecedented proportions.
