Chernobyl nuclear power plant disaster, the very first footage taken of the remains of the destroyer reactor 4, mere hours after its destruction following a botched reactor restart experiment.

Footage by soviet photographer Igor Fedorovich Kostin (27 December 1936 – 9 June 2015), one of the few first responders to the disaster that survived the exposure to the massive amounts of radiation expelled by the exposed reactor core during the first days of the disaster. 

From the 2006 documentary The Battle of Chernobyl.
