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 investigates extreme weather conditions, beginning by focusing on floods including the devastation caused at Boscastle in August 2004, during which more than 100 people were airlifted to safety. He asks whether the London Thames Barrier’s seven-metre-high gates will provide sufficient protection in future years and considers the consequences of London suffering the same fate as New Orleans.
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.
