As seen on Sky Atlantic

CHERNOBYL

Arrives on digital 4 July 2019 On DVD 15 July 2019 On Blu-ray 29 July 2019

‘ENTHRALLING, QUIETLY spectacular, meticulously researched’ (The Observer) Sky Original drama Chernobyl explores the truth surrounding the disastrous nuclear power plant explosion in 1986 – a story of incredible heroism and sacrifice, but also shocking lies and conspiracy. Currently airing on Sky Atlantic to great acclaim, the gripping five-part series is set to arrive on DVD and digital from Acorn Media International.

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 Skarsgård (Mamma Mia, Thor) plays Soviet Deputy Prime Minister Boris Shchergina, leading the government commission from a safe distance.

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.

Chernobyl will be available digitally to download and keep from 4 July 2019, then as a two disc set on DVD 15 July 2019 and on Blu-ray 29 July 2019.
