The Series

With unique access, this brand new series follows the construction workers at Hinkley Point C, Britain’s biggest and newest nuclear power station being built in a remote corner of the Somerset countryside.

With a price tag of over twenty-two billion pounds and covering an area the size of 250 football pitches, this extraordinary construction site is one of the largest in Europe, and the UK’s first new nuclear power station for a generation.

This series follows the engineers, technicians, and the behind the scenes staff who are under pressure to keep the project on track, including building the mammoth foundations for the two nuclear reactors, excavating 3.5km cooling water tunnels out under the Bristol Channel, and constructing the critical airtight inner steel lining designed to contain any radioactive material in the unlikely event of a meltdown.
