TEPCO releases teleconference videos to media


08:44, August 07, 2012

TOKYO, Aug. 6 (Xinhua) -- Tokyo Electric Power Company on Monday released the teleconference videos in the aftermath of the Fukushima nuclear disaster at a press conference in TEPCO's headquarters.

The 150-hour-long video, with 100 hours in silence, recorded the teleconference between the Fukushima No.1 nuclear power plant and the headquarters from March 11th to 15th.

TEPCO only allowed journalists to watch the videos in a special computer room inside the headquarters with copying and recording prohibited.

The inaudible video files include the visit of then Prime Minister Naoto Kan to TEPCO's headquarters during the crises, showing Kan was speaking with many gestures of outrage.

TEPCO also provided an edited 90-mintue edition video, showing the operation room of Fukushima No.1 nuclear power plant was in a mess after the hydrogen explosion occurred at No.1 reactor.

Parts of the video images given by TEPCO have been obscured by mosaic patterns, citing privacy concerns.

Local media organizations criticized TEPCO's way of disclosing the footage and called on the utility to release all of the recordings without restrictions.
