Killer Rain

Image 1 / 3

Since the dawn of man we have attempted to understand what causes the weather. Advances in science are giving us an ever clearer picture about the forces behind the weather, cutting edge technology is enabling us to predict and even control the weather in a way inconceivable just a few years ago. This series will take you to the heart of the latest science behind the weather, from the causes of lightning strikes deep in outer space, to the military technology being used to create rainstorms and the earth simulator in Japan, a giant computer that re-creates the earth's systems. We'll also look at the human drama behind these pioneering discoveries, the danger, the scepticism and the achievements.
