“Onkalo must last 100,000 years, but nothing built by man has lasted nearly a tenth of that timespan.”

“The design, the construction, and the implementation has to be done so that no knowledge is necessary for the future, so that it can be safe in case people lose the knowledge.”

‘Into Eternity’ is a feature-length documentary following the construction of the Onkalo Nuclear Waste Repository Facility, on the island of Olkiluoto, off the West coast of Finland. Described as a ‘deep geological repository’, it is the first of its kind in the world, and is destined to accommodate the final disposal of Finland’s spent nuclear fuel.

Check it out, its mesmerising!

Available on Iplayer for the next 6 days:

“Dan Cruickshank explores the mysteries and secrets of the bridges that have made London what it is. He uncovers stories of bronze-age relics emerging from the Vauxhall shore, of why London Bridge was falling down, of midnight corpses splashing beneath Waterloo Bridge, and above all, of the sublime ambition of London’s bridge builders themselves.”
