Britain’s Weather: Storm Heroes,on Channel 4 – we’re looking for more people to get involved by sharing their experiences of extreme weather in the UK throughout 2015. If you saw our first programme Britain’s Winter: Storm Heroes and are interested in having your footage featured in the sequel here’s the brief…

  • Do you have an interest in weather in the UK and enjoy filming it?
  • Do you live in an area affected by extreme weather?
  • Do you have a job that requires you to work in extreme weather?

If so we’d love to hear from you.

We are producing a 90 minute sequel looking at Britain’s Weatherthat will chart extreme weather in the UK over the course of a whole year and will air on Channel 4 in the run up to Christmas 2015.

We want to get a complete picture of the way that storms, high winds, heavy rain, floods, heatwaves and freak weather occurrences can affect life for ordinary Britons – so we’re asking you to contribute your footage of life in extreme weather conditions.

Whether you’re a storm chaser, a weather watcher, a homeowner whose house gets lashed by waves, or simply someone whose town is hit by a bad storm, we’d like to see what you can capture on your camera, camera-phone, go-pro or similar device.
