The impact of extreme weather conditions on major events such as the Hindenburg crash, the sinking of the Titanic and the Challenger disaster is explored in a new series set to air on Yesterday.
The UKTV-owned channel has snapped up rights to nine-part series, Weather That Changed The World.
The show uses extreme weather footage, reconstructions and testimony from experts to reveal how the history of the world has been defined by the elements and how weather continues to impact our lives today.
Adrian Wills, General Manager for Yesterday, commented: “Weather that Changed the World unravels the mystery behind some of history’s most infamous events by showing how they were shaped by the elements.
“It answers questions like why there was an iceberg in the Titanic’s path, and how the extreme cold contributed to the Challenger space shuttle disaster. Taking in the impact of weather on warfare, the series also shows how the destiny of millions has been determined by quirks of nature.”
Weather That Changed The World will air in October.
