Just finished watching this 3x1 hour miniseries on BBC TV (a co-production with a US company).

It's set in the present day, and the plot focuses on meteorologists who are trying to divert the course of hurricanes due to hit the SW USA.

It had me on the edge of my seat, with some great graphics and high tension, not just from the hurricanes but in the infighting within the group (disagreeing over which method to use) and with the battle between technical and political considerations. It also had a wonderfully tantalising ending, if not exactly a happy one.

Definitely worth watching.

I must admit, Tony, that I only managed the first episode of this. I had high hopes but sadly this didn't reach it.

The effects were great but I found the characters awful and the dialogue worse. (That often happens for me at the moment: see Torchwood )

Really didn't sympathise with them at all. In fact, I found the loud American so annoying I didn't bother with the second episode.

Pleased someone enjoyed it though!
