Nuclear Crisis in Japan – Tetsuo Jimbo

We started this segment with the sound of Tetsuo Jimbo’s journey into the 20-kilometre evacuation zone around Japan’s crippled nuclear reactors. The clicking and beeping is the geiger counter in his car, alerting him to the radiation levels around him.

Tetsuo Jimbo is a Japanese journalist who decided to drive to ground zero to view the danger zone and to try to find anyone who had stayed behind after the evacuation. Tetsuo Jimbo was in Tokyo this morning.
