Marshall and RADSAFErs,

In case some of you missed this Greenpeace propaganda because of lack of knowledge of the German language: You in fact did not miss much. The film has obviously been composed and directed by "professionals". It uses all the stereotypes used by Greenpeace and the like groups: Sick children, claimed to be affected by contamination,  desperate mothers, poverty everywhere around the site (it never has been in another way before), etc. etc. A narrator, who has obviously undertaken this trip out of curiosity and to satisfy his wish for adventure as well as for a probably higher status in his green group. The measurement instruments are partly absolute ridiculous and one of the "experts" mentions when he obviously presses the "go" button, that one would know very soon the "DOSE" from the soil or whatever the sample was. No explicit mentioning of the fact that the visit to the Chernobyl exclusion zone has been a  cash cow for some Ukrainian organisations since decades. 

There is only one positive comment: This film is by orders of magnitude better information than all those messages which Chris Busby (sorry, Prof. Chris Busby!) distributes on RADSAFE.

Best regards,
