Cooke shot amazing footage of the area for a 60 minutes episode, which aired this year as well. He had extra footage not used for the show that he just released on his Vimeo channel. What makes this footage extra special is that Cooke shot it using a drone with a camera attached. To say that it’s breathtaking would be an understatement. On his trip to Chernobyl Cooke wrote in his website, ” Chernobyl is one of the most interesting and dangerous places I’ve been. The nuclear disaster, which happened in 1986 (the year after I was born), had an effect on so many people, including my family when we lived in Italy.”

Cooke said, ” The nuclear dust clouds swept westward towards us. The Italian police went round and threw away all the local produce and my mother rushed out to purchase as much tinned milk as possible to feed me, her infant son. It caused so much distress hundreds of miles away, so I can’t imagine how terrifying it would have been for the hundreds of thousands of Ukrainian citizens who were forced to evacuate.”

He added,” There was something serene, yet highly disturbing about this place. Time has stood still and there are memories of past happenings floating around us.” The Pripyat amusement park in Pripyat, Ukraine was scheduled to open just days before the nuclear disaster Chernobyl. With no humans, the surrounding forests are slowly reclaiming the city of Pripyat.
