A horrific series of disasters devastated Japan two years ago today. First an earthquake, then a tsunami and then a nuclear meltdown at the Fukushima Daiichi power plant.

Today’s anniversary is being marked with protests against nuclear power in Japan. But can the country sustain a non-nuclear energy policy?

The BBC’s Rupert Wingfield-Hayes in Tokyo joins Marketplace Morning Report host Jeremy Hobson to discuss the legacy of Fukushima and the clean up efforts still underway.
