Timeshift – Killer Storms and Cruel Winters: The History of Extreme Weather 4 January 2022: Tuesday on BBC Four
Series 14 Episode 2 of 6 – If you think Britain has recently been on the end of some of the worst floods and storms ever experienced, think again. So says solar scientist Dr Lucie Green, as she takes a journey back through our most turbulent and dramatic weather history.
She finds an 18th-century storm surge that killed over a thousand people working in open Somerset fields, a hurricane that drowned a fifth of the British Navy and winters so bitter that the country came close to total shutdown. But she also explores how our reactions to killer storms and cruel winters helped forge a weather science that today allows us to predict – and protect ourselves from – the worst extremes.
