Snowstorm: Britain's Big Freeze
Thursday, 26th February 2009
10pm to 11:05pm
In the first weeks of February 2009, Britain suffered its worst snow falls in 18 years. This film explores the possible factors behind the highly unusual weather.
On a brisk Monday in February 2009, large parts of Britain almost ground to a halt. The snow and ice continued all week as parts of Britain began to adapt and resume their routine. Great swathes of the nation suffered from heavy snow, icy roads and flooding, crippled by relentless snow- and rainfall, and unable to cope.
In a climate mostly dominated by the recession, Britain was turned into a fun, white wonderland by this sudden change in conditions, but with more than just a few broken bones as a result. This documentary examines the causes of this dramatic weather and asks if it really is that unusual.
