Documentary series about the weather looks at wind, caused by the interaction of temperature, pressure and the earth's rotation which took scientists over a thousand years to fully explain.
We witness some remarkable wind-related stories, such as the tornado that flung Dorothy Allwright and her caravan into the air and how Scottish engineer James Blyth invented the first electricity-producing wind turbine in 1887.
Once we looked to the gods to explain the wind, until science unlocked its mysteries. Today, we may have come to understand the wind but we will never master it, and we ignore this elemental force at our peril.
