I don;t know if you can find it in Germany, but see if you can find episode 3 of Our Guy in Russia[^] - he's a truck mechanic and motorcycle racer / tv engineering bloke, and it's ... um ... interesting. He has cojones! There is a bit where you are only allowed to stop for 20 seconds to examine the Sarcophagus and he's reluctant to leave that quickly despite a countdown and his alarm bleeping away merrily... Surveying Chernobyl - YouTube[^].

Bit Bizzar, but I can remember exactly where I was when I heard about it, a Day's Inn in Florida. The news had a thing on it for about a minute with a green cloud covering most of Europe! then they went to more important stuff about a farmer who had record braking calf!
pparently a series about Chernobyl was aired some times ago
Yes, only a month or two ago in fact. HBO's Chernobyl. It's actually a dramatized mini-series, not a documentary, but it's quite close to the facts. They took liberties with some of the characters for the purposes of telling the story, and it shows one or two scenes which only happened in anecdotal, and therefore unreliable, testimony. But it's very, very well put together and hugely gripping.
One morning I shot an elephant in my pajamas. How he got in my pajamas, I don't know.
So starting next week you'll probably want to change your profile name to "12 Finger Rage" or something like that...
Anything that is unrelated to elephants is irrelephant Anonymous - The problem with quotes on the internet is that you can never tell if they're genuine Winston Churchill, 1944 - Never argue with a fool. Onlookers may not be able to tell the difference. Mark Twain
