Things You Need to Know
The WeatherStreaming Video - 2012
Weather may be a frequent conversation topic, but making it a focus of curiosity and amazement-that's a rare triumph. This program succeeds through a combination of eye-popping motion graphics, irreverent humor, and cutting-edge scientific expertise. Drawn from the United Kingdom's top level of meteorology and physics researchers, four on-screen commentators address a wide range of provocative yet rarely considered questions-from "Why is weather so unpredictable?" to "What generates wind?" to "How do oceans affect the weather?" to "What is a perfect storm?" Their answers are packed with facts and insights that will surprise, entertain, and inform.
