BBC1’s new Superstorm mini-series might be worth a watch (or worth videoing/PVRing) on Sunday night. 9pm, for the next three weeks.
Set in the near future where global warming has led to ferocious hurricanes, a factually-based drama series which follows a team of scientists as they embark on a project to investigate ways of diverting and weakening storms.
Packed full of action, breathtaking CGI, intrigue and a twist with every turn, Superstorm is as compelling as it is nightmarish. This is not science fiction: it's science prediction.
The main show is followed by a spin-off on BBC2 at 10pm, The Science of Superstorms, looking at some of the futuristic weather modification research that the drama is based upon.
