Every other Wednesday we present a new video, so join us to see the truth laid bare...

What do we talk most about in the United Kingdom? The Great British Weather, it’s part of our culture, we’re obsessed with it, but sometimes it can turn from being a mere talking point, into something deadly.

Professor Nick Middleton continues his investigation by visiting the Cairngorms in Scotland. He experiences first-hand the effects snow and extreme cold can have on the human body, including the disorientation caused by blizzards and the onset of hypothermia. The threat avalanches pose also comes under the spotlight, along with the havoc wreaked on the nation's roads by heavy snowfall.

Investigating Floods, Storms, Lightning and Snow, this four-part series will combine archive footage of some of the most spectacular weather phenomena ever caught on film with on-location footage of some of the UK's most notorious weather black-spots. Using original footage and Nick Middleton's expert knowledge, the series will provide viewers with the most up-to-date and comprehensive understanding of these ever-increasing natural occurrences.
