I was working in a nuclear power station at the time and remember being monitored going IN to work. The disaster has left a terrible legacy.

I had a print and graphics company.
One contract was to prepare the corporate ID for a specialist construction company.
At the time they were working on 'Clean Room installations on the Dungeness 'B' site then under construction.
They wanted photo's of their work on the site so I had to go through all sorts of hoops to get the appropriate permissions.
Came the day we travelled to the site and I was all apprehension and wonderment at the thought of seeing all this 'Technology'
So was I taken through in to main building through many curtains of heavy polythene screens to to 'Clean Room under construction.
What did I see?
A gang of large chaps from the Emerald Isle,
Acres of 4x3 studding
Sheets and sheets of aluminium lined Plasterboard.
Loads of sticky joint tape. and lots of Vent Axia fans to maintain a positive pressure inside.
What a let down.

That joint tape was state-of-the-art when it was first introduced.
