    🙏🏼 Thank you for making these videos possible through your support of Seek Discomfort

    I've been fascinated with Chernobyl since the moment I read about it in history class over 10 years ago. A few months ago I had the opportunity to go explore it after a big snowfall. The stories we heard were both heartbreaking and inspiring. So excited to finally be able to share.

    We were all tested for Covid multiple times before filming this episode and no one has showed any symptoms in the months following this trip.

    Thank you to:
    Nazar Dorosh for the FPV drone shots:

    Cory Martin for the cinematography:

    Misha for the guidance:

    And Yuri Tabach for the facilitation of this trip.

      As you can see, we decided to not add any sponsors or plugs on this story so we could focus on the story-telling and visual experience. But making a video of this complexity without sponsor is definitely not easy, the support from Seek Discomfort is largely how we're able to create stories like this one. It took us several months get the edit to this place and a few days of filming. I'm super proud of how the video came out and hope you enjoy it. Watch it on a TV for full experience :) See you next week - Thomas

      1. Squishy Fish

        Thankyou, you have inspired to chase my dreams to be an explorer

      2. Jéan Nel

        I hope you burnt your clothes after you went there because you will still get radiation from the material of your clothes.

      3. Carbon Proksi

        A quick search on YT and the internet has many saying it's not, then add that the authorities even allow folks to visit the contaminated areas of Chernobyl. Thus "the most radioactive" is potentially bs clickbait.

      The drone shots here are incredible!!

    11. Chris

      This was really well made. +1 for your editing crew.

    12. 7Seven2Six

      Good cinematorgraphy except for the drone shots. A steady aerial shot without the 360 and barrel-roll would have been much better. Acrobatics are headache inducing.

    13. Flamingo

      You can now count on 1 hand how many hours youve spent there


      If u go to pripyat the Ferris that is there is used in the first Call of duty Modern Warfare

    17. A B

      The former residents of Pripyat are likely to never return to the town, and they almost certainly will never live there again. It is estimated that the area won't be safe for humans to live for at least 20,000 years.

      Investment are stepping stones for success. Waiting for the government to provide is a big waste

      1. Matho Muller

        Truth, In order to succeed, your desire for success you should be greater than your fear for failure.

      2. Richard Lucas

        Success in life does not come so easy, is not all about hard work but buy investing if we desire to achieve greatness

      3. James christopher

        Ma'am Christine Morgan's strategies is so awesome. I get 10 times of my capital in seven days.

    39. Commander Jameson

      for many other youtubers it´s a daily routine working with no sponsors in sight... so what?

    40. DUEJEN FF

      This is my favourite channel. I especially like it when you explain everything so nicely. I wish you a lot of success with the channel and happy life

      1. Raaffuu

        Most likely lol

    64. Gabe

      Isn’t Fukushima the most radioactive place tho

    65. Jacob Grow

      Overwhelming, Sad, Man Made. All of the words that I think of when thinking of what happened in Chernoylb.

    66. Parker Haines

      Is all the annoying background music necessary

      What a fantastic video, thank you so much for putting this together and sharing with us.

    71. wuoi zuiu

      If by some miracle the radiation was suddenly gone, this place would be the coolest Airsfot arena ever ever ever. Just mind the falling buildings....

    72. GIJO JACOB

      make video where can tell strangers to live free in bunker 24 hour

    73. ellojello c

      I feel like all of Yes Theory's videos are such high quality and I really enjoy watching them explore historic places and interview survivors and witnesses.

    74. Tyler Vandierdonck

      So I’m confused, why didn’t they have to wear protective radiation clothing? Like some of those readings looked VERY high if 0.3 is normal

      1. Jung Novel

        That type of radiation scatters in the air easily, so unless you are super close to them you're relatively safe.

    75. Shaaranya Mishra

      Watching this, I can see that Activision took HEAVY inspiration from this city to make Verdansk in Warzone. I mean I know it's based on this but it's crazy how similar the two are!

    76. Sid-_- P

      Lol I can relate this to COD M

    77. Mat Grafy

      Can someone explain to me, isnt it dangerous if they go to chernobyl without a mask or something? Like isnt it dangerous to stay to long because of the high radioactive activity

    78. Jules VDA

      shiey did it better

    79. Arun Chauhan

      Aw, babushka 🤗

    80. Joseph Matthew

      Typical Slavic grandma, always want to feed their grandchildren, and remember never say no to Slavic grandma.

    90. Dylan Frigo

      Fukushima, Japan is actually the most radioactive place on earth.

      1. bcvbb hyui

        Next time do sempipalatinsk (typo) in Kazakhstan

    91. Gianna Aragona

      How is it that you wore a mask for a bit inside the house but not outside where the radiation is? Do you not get affected when you're there for a short period of time?

    92. Tara Murphy

      You should look into the Kingdom of Agharta. It is supposedly the hidden city, the original garden of eden some say. Right in the centre of the earth. Travel to one or two of the apparent entrance’s around the world. Even if you can’t get in, its interesting to read about

    93. idk tbh

      Is that the grandma from bald and bankrupt

    94. Opiate

      4:27 Does no one else notice the dog laying directly on the irradiated ground right after they showed the Geiger counter going off?

      1. Tyler Vandierdonck

        I did and I thought it was dead, Im 98% sure it’s dead

    95. Team Zybe

      7:30 sounds like some Pokémon go music

    96. Game Over

      OMG they made cod4 irl!

    97. Emil Kamp
