And he looks at whether low-skilled workers are being recruited deliberately into the nuclear industry without adequate training. Japan is heavily dependent on nuclear power - but all its reactors are all located miles from population centres. However, this fact doesn't protect all of the population. 2/4

Higuchi says, "I stumbled upon these stories as a young photographer 20 years ago." "The scenes I saw and the stories I heard I found difficult to believe at first - that workers go near the reactor, get exposed and many of them become ill with radiation sickness and sometimes die." ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, 3/4

Higuchi finds that most of these nuclear workers are poor and at the bottom of the social pile. Desperate for jobs, people often seem prepared to gamble with their health in order to work.

Often shot undercover in difficult and dangerous conditions, this season of documentaries and feature films has already proved controversial in some of the countries filmed in. Tonight, Japanese photographer Kenji Higuchi reports on safety conditions in his country's nuclear power stations. 1/4
