Presented by Donal MacIntyre

Experience our planet's most powerful f-rces, from the deadly heat of the Sahara to the f-rce-12 winds of a hurricane. Join investigative reporter Donal MacIntyre as he is blasted, roasted, frozen and soaked on his expedition to the heart of the weather.

Combining far-flung adventures with stunning effects and rare archives footage, The Weather reveals the f-rces that connect every inch of the globe. Find out why the weather is changing... and what that means for our future.

Wind

What can wind do at its worst? Tornado and hurricane survivors recount scenes of incredible devastation, while Donal meets f-rce-12 winds head on in a wind tunnel. Two balloonists entrust their lives to the fickle f-rces of the jet stream, and we learn how it was put to deadly use by the Japanese during World War II.

Wet

Ride with the storm clouds from the wettest place in the world to the parched Texan desert, where farmers hope to harness the power of nature to create rain. From the first drop of a monsoon to the floods that kill millions each year, water brings life and death in equal measure.

Cold

Avalanches and ice storms are only a few of the spectacular phenomena that come with winter. But what about pure cold? After half an hour in his underwear at minus 18 degrees, Donal has to be rescued or die, as his body begins to shut down. So how do people live and work at 40 below?

Heat

The sun's energy can kill - in our own cities as well as in the hot deserts of the equator. But the gravest danger may be the warming Earth, with its rising sea levels, angry skies, superstorms and devastating hurricanes.
