Wild Weather Weather: it's big, it's beautiful - and it's wild.
Tornados or sandstorms take simple ingredients like air, earth, and water and transform them into something spectacular, powerful, and incredibly dangerous. Despite scientists studying it for thousands of years, we know far less about how weather works than anyone might expect. This, however, is about to change. By teaming up with maverick experts and renowned specialists from all around the world, a whole range of fascinating new discoveries from the cutting edge of science will be revealed.
This extensive portrait of nature's forces has it all. Furthermore, ten thousand ping-pong balls will demonstrate how a sandstorm works; a whirlwind made of fire will illustrate the wind's movements; and the destructive force of water, liquid as well as frozen, will speak for itself.
Wild Weather is a fresh and informative documentary featuring a series of ambitious, surprising, and revealing experiments that will change the way you think about weather forever.
VIDEO USAGE RIGHTS
Why the AV version? Because it provides additional usage options for PBS videos. AV versions come with limited performance rights so they can be shown in classrooms, at PTA meetings, during after school programs, and transmitted on a closed-circuit system within a building or on a single campus. They also can be enjoyed in admission-free public screenings, which also makes them ideal for use by library patrons and businesses involved in community clubs and organizations.
