Followed by a Q&A with (the real) Michael Fish!
On the 15 October 1987, the absent-father of all storms was about to vent apocalyptic fury upon the south-east corner of the Kingdom of United. In a televised address to the nation, celebrity weatherman and rising national treasure, Michael Phish, relays a different forecast.
Why did this critically acclaimed winning Titan of meteorology foresee its arrival, but choose to tell a different story? Welcome to the world exclusive – the truth behind the Great Storm of 1987. Uncover the whys and wheretofores of this cataclysmic event, and encounter corporate skulduggery in the 1980s corridors of power. Shake the hand of the man that shook the meteorological establishment, and decide for yourself – is the BBC fit for purpose, and are there worlds elsewhere?
Running time 65 minutes plus Q&A
