Enter into the lives of the wolves and other wildlife thriving in the “dead zone” around Chernobyl.

What happens to nature after a nuclear accident, and how does wildlife cope with the world it inherits after the human inhabitants have fled? That is the provocative subject of Radioactive Wolves, the 30th season premiere of Nature, airing Wednesday, April 25, 2012 at 8 p.m. on WXXI-TV/HD (DT21.1/cable 11/cable 1011). Harry Smith narrates.
