THE CHINA SYN­DROME (1979) 7TWO, 11.30PM, M, DRAMA

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

Jane Fonda and Michael Dou­glas are a TV news crew who catch, on tape, ac­tion of a nu­clear power sta­tion’s near-disas­ter. Un­known to the men in suits who try to cover up the mishap, the two in­tend to break the hard news and nail the in­dus­try. In­trigue fol­lows as their scoop is re­fused for air­ing and they are dis­suaded from con­tin­u­ing their in­ves­ti­ga­tions. The two team with the plant’s fore­man (Jack Lem­mon), who also has his sus­pi­cions. This po­lit­i­cal pot­boiler is com­mend­able for both fine act­ing and a sen­si­ble ap­proach to its test­ing sub­ject mat­ter. ★★★★
