Humans haven't been allowed to live around the Chernobyl nuclear reactor since it melted down in 1986, but that hasn't stopped the wildlife from moving in. Although it is regarded as the most contaminated ecosystem on Earth, life still thrives there. Learn how the animals there have been affected in sometimes bizarre ways. Guest: Timothy Mousseau, Professor of Biological Sciences at the University of South Carolina (rebroadcast)
