Win Chernobyl on DVD


Sky Original drama Chernobyl explores the truth surrounding the disastrous nuclear power plant explosion – a story of incredible heroism and sacrifice, but also shocking lies and conspiracy. Having aired on Sky Atlantic to great acclaim, the gripping five-part series is set to arrive on DVD and digital from Acorn Media International on July 15, 2019.

The result of extensive research, Chernobyl seeks to tell the stories of those directly involved in causing the catastrophe and those affected by the nuclear fallout felt across the world. Jared Harris (Mad Men, The Crown) stars as Valery Legasov, a nuclear physicist who is one of the first people to grasp the scope of the nuclear disaster.

Ulana Khomyuk (Emily Watson, Apple Tree Yard, The Theory of Everything) is a scientist committed to getting to the bottom of the cause, while Lyudmilla Ignatenko (Jessie Buckley, Wild Rose, Beast) is the wife of a firefighter who was first on the scene. Stellan Skarsgard (Mamma Mia, Thor) plays Soviet Deputy Prime Minister Boris Shchergina, leading the government commission from a safe distance.

Directed by The Walking Dead‘s Jonas Renck, the series is committed to a realism that refuses to shy away from the horrors, both physical and psychological, inflicted upon the victims of this uniquely horrifying event. Investigating the lengths to which governments will go to cover up atrocities and suppress the spread of information, Chernobyl also acts as a timely warning: the truth will out.
