Measure for Measure - Temperature
Temperature is critical and our very life depends on it.
Our bodies, buildings and cars all need to be kept at certain temperatures.
Too cold or too hot and they'll be damaged or even destroyed.
Yet it's an illusive quantity and pretty hard to estimate.
The way we tell the temperature is through our skin.
The problem is what's hot to one person is warm to another.
Yorkshireman Brian Glover (GRHS) includes plenty of humour as he explains
all about the measurement of temperature in another brilliant programme
shown on BBC2 in 1993.
