When The Weather Changed History

THE HISTORY CHANNEL – Thursdays from 3 January, 8.30pm

Combining rare photographs, actuality footage, dramatizations and interviews with meteorological experts, the series recreates major historical events in which the outcome was determined by the weather. Among the subjects covered are such natural disasters as extreme cold weather that caused the Challenger explosion, and the failure of Hitler’s offensive against American troops stationed in the Ardennes Forest, Belgium. Meteorologist Jim Cantore, a popular Weather Channel personality, serves as host and narrator for each hour-long episode of When Weather Changed History.
