Summary Britain is trying to find solutions to deal with its growing stockpile of nuclear waste, and Cumbria in the country's Lake District - known for its natural beauty and home to England's largest National Park - has so far been the only place to put up its hand as a potential site for a long-term high level waste facility.Dateline's Aaron Thomas visits the county and finds a community fighting back. He is there as angry residents, concerned about the safety and environmental impact of storing the hazardous waste in such a pristine environment, go head to head with the government pushing a controversial proposal to bury radioactive material underneath the idyllic countryside. Aaron also travels to Finland where they are building a giant bunker deep underground to store their nuclear leftovers for the next hundred thousand years.Meanwhile, Dateline's Adrian Brown travels to Japan where two years on from the devastating earthquake and tsunami, people are still living with the aftermath of the Fukushima nuclear disaster. Visiting areas deeply impacted by the catastrophe, Adrian investigates what life is like for those who chose to remain in the area.Dateline is hosted by award-winning journalist Anjali Rao.
