We love telly: DOCUMENTARY - WINDSCALE: BRITAIN'S BIGGEST NUCLEAR DISASTER BBC2, 9pm.

Byline: by MAEVE QUIGLEY

FIFTY years since fire spread through the core of the Windscale nuclear reactor in Cumbria, tape recordings of the inquiry are finally made public.

Some of the men who risked their lives to fight the blaze are still bitter as they explain how they were made scapegoats for the disaster.

Windscale was the public face of Britain's drive to produce an atom bomb and warnings of leaks and overheating were ignored in the rush to get the reactor running.
