This film segment from the PBS NOW series focuses on nuclear power plants in the United States as potential targets for terrorists. It contrasts the concerns of citizens' groups with assurances from the nuclear power industry and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) that they have secured nuclear reactor sites against terrorist attacks. The segment examines the new security standards developed after the attacks of September 11, 2001 in relative secrecy with little public input.
