Summary There is nothing anyone can do to control the weather. Over time we have learned to live with wild storms, searing heatwaves, merciless droughts, and prolonged periods of bitter cold. As this program explains, through a mixture of on-the-spot news reports and fascinating background information, they are all examples of extreme or unusual weather—nature at its deadliest and most destructive.
