Fukushima Prefecture is conducting a health survey with all its 2 million residents to estimate the amount of their external radiation exposure during the first 4 months of the accident. On February 20, the results of the preliminary survey with approximately 10,000 residents were announced.
This video shows how NHK Fukushima TV reported about the results and how 2 experts reacted to them. One is Dr. Shunichi Yamashita, Vice President of Fukushima Medical University, who played a critical role in persuading residents out of immediate evacuation by preaching safety through his many lectures in the early months of the accident. The other one is Dr. Hiroaki Koide, Research Associate at Kyoto University Research Reactor Institute, who has been fighting against nuclear power plants for nearly 40 years.

The second half of this video clip is from a news & information radio program called "Tanemaki Journal" aired on February 20, 2012 (this part is audio only).
