The White Stuff

on BBC Radio 4 FM

Look up, look up! When was the last time you wondered at the clouds above you? Scudding cumulus, churning valleys of nimbus, great plains of stratus. Two hundred years ago Luke Howard named them and changed our understanding of them forever. Biographer Richard Hamblyn ascends into the unfurling mysteries, myths and substance of the white stuff. Producer Mark Burman
