Earth's Frontiers will feature a debate from University College London in April. The impact of the earthquake and tsunami to Japan's nuclear facilities repoens the debate surrounding the safety of nuclear energy. As Japanese authorities battle to contain the crisis, thoughts are turning to the future. The politics of nuclear power is under the kind of scrutiny last seen in the aftermath of Chernobyl. Since that time, the world's industrial powers have gradually learned to embrace nuclear energy as the cleanest and best alternative source to fossil fuels. Earth's Frontiers gathers a panel of experts, academics and well-known figures to discuss how safe nuclear energy really is and whether it offers the best hope for saving our planet, as its proponents claim. In spite of events in Japan, will people learn to put their fears aside and embrace a nuclear-powered future?
ANZAC Day is commemorated on 25th April.
The new Nigerian President will be sworn in on 29th April.
