Meltdown at Three Mile Island (1999) -- At 4:00 AM on March 28, 1979, a reactor at the Three Mile Island nuclear power facility near Harrisburg, Pennsylvania suddenly overheated, releasing radioactive gases. During the ensuing tension-packed week, scientists scrambled to prevent the nightmare of a meltdown, officials rushed in to calm public fears, and thousands of residents fled to emergency shelters. Equipment failure, human error, and bad luck would conspire to create America's worst nuclear accident.

ShopPBS no longer seems to carry this, and the cheapest video you will find is on or Amazon priced at $69. (It was never officially released on DVD.)
