Documentary series about the weather. The rain is an essential part of being British, giving us the English lawn, the sliding tackle and endless grounds for complaint, but what do we really know about it?

The programme uncovers the true shape of a raindrop, shows how and why rain falls, and tells remarkable stories of how we have adapted or succumbed to this elemental force of nature, such as James Glaisher's seven-mile hot-air balloon ascent in 1862, and how Charles Macintosh invented the waterproof coat.

The Victorians believed that they could master the rain and push it aside, but today climate change threatens us with rain that is wilder and more unpredictable than ever.

It is March 2009, and the Queen's Dragoon Guards are in Afghanistan, nearing the end of their bloodiest tour of duty in fifty years. A third of the soldiers in one of the regiment's troops are only eighteen, and face a huge range of dangers. But their sergeant, Butch Davies from Swansea, does everything he can to ensure their safety.

A revealing and compelling insight into daily life, and death, for Welsh soldiers on the front line.
