Series 2 Episode 3
9PM Wed 27 August 2014

An icicle the size of a house closes down a whole street in Canada as contractors attempt to remove it using chainsaws. The weather is behind a mysterious green haze that envelops Moscow 26 years to the day after the Chernobyl disaster.

The programme also features rare footage of lightning bolts called blue jets reaching up to the edge of space. The Severn tidal bore gives a surfer the chance to ride a wave for over nine miles.

Chile's Atacama Desert is the driest place on Earth, but a storm dumps two and a half feet of snow in it. And beautiful bubbles of frozen methane, suspended in time, are captured on camera beneath the surface of a lake in Canada.
