A pity that Australians generally missed out on seeing the “Chernobyl” series

In Australia – the TV miniseries “Chernobyl” has pretty much passed us by, with minimum discussion.  That’s because it has been available only on Foxtel.  Foxtel does have many subscribers, but they”re mainly on Foxtel so that they can watch the AFL Football, which is the major religion in this country.  So – it’ s no surprise that even the majority of Foxtel subscribers are not likely to watch “Chernobyl”.

Hardly remarkable, in a country so devoted to that religion, and secondarily devoted to reality and cooking shows.  But a bit of a pity, as the influential, though poorly informed, right wing is pushing for nuclear power in Australia.  Watching “Chernobyl” might have given Australians an opportunity to think about the downsides of nuclear power.
