Starting the year with two fast turnarounds about the British weather (The Storms that Stole Christmas and the Storms that Foiled New Year for Channel 4) was just a taste of things to come.
Following the success of Strangest Weather on Earth for The Weather Channel in the US (which was then re-versioned for Channel 4 with presenter Alex Beresford), Pioneer received the greenlight on a second series of eight one hour episodes.
Strangest Weather on Earth shows some of the world’s weirdest weather happenings using UGC, CGI and archive footage, as well as giving scientific explanations for each phenomenon.
Continuing Pioneer’s weather success, Channel 4 then commissioned The Truth about Britain’s Weather. This 4x60 minuteseries saw Alex Beresford fronting aninvestigation into the UK weather to discover if it is indeed getting worse. Using a mixture of science, UGC and amazing weather archive the series reviewed historical meteorological events looking for patterns that might explain the recent extreme weather conditions.
