KTTV-TV, in a three-part series, shows how Pacific Gas and Electric polluted the town of Hinkley. The utility company was exposing its workers and residents of the town to a chemical known to cause genetic damage; the series examined the claims of birth defects, health problems and Pacific Gas and Electrics alleged criminal intent. After the series, more alleged victims came forward and a lawsuit was filed against the company, May 23, 24, and 26, 1994.
