Cutting Edge - A Very British Storm Junkie
Thursday, 12th February 2009
9pm to 10pm
Stuart Robinson is one of life’s true eccentrics. He works as an IT consultant in Leicestershire and seems, to all outward appearances, to be entirely ordinary. But this is a man obsessed with foul weather, so much so that whenever a tornado or hurricane is brewing anywhere in the world, he can’t wait to get there.
To date, he has gone chasing after 30 tornados and 6 hurricanes. When the wind starts blowing and the trees start snapping and the power lines come crashing down, he begins to shake with excitement. The harder it blows, the happier he is. “Absolutely incredible!” he shouts. “It really is! There is nowhere I would be right now than on the outer edge of this hurricane! Nowhere!”
The trouble for Stuart is that the real storm lies at home with his long suffering partner and soon to be wife, Alison. The scale of Alison’s disapproval of being a “storm WAG” is at first limited to a roll of the eyes. But soon enough Stuart's obsession comes up against the responsibilities of married life, and he has got a few important choices to make.
You can watch an interview with Stuart about the show at Channel4's A Very British Storm Junkie microsite.
