'Chernobyl By Drone' Is A Haunting Glimpse At The World Without People

There can be few more fascinating -- and haunting -- places on Earth than Chernobyl.

The 1986 nuclear disaster left the town, and nearby Pripyat, totally abandoned, and since then no one has managed to take decent footage of the area. Until now. Danny Cooke recently managed to visit the area with his trusty drone, and record this footage for a 60 Minutes special.

"There was something serene, yet highly disturbing about this place," Cooke said.

"Time has stood still and there are memories of past happenings floating around us."
