The Great British Drought
Something peculiar has happened to Britain's weather. During the last two months we have heard frequent stories of forest fires, dried-up reservoirs and even rumours of water rationing. How much of it is true and what is the meaning of the present scare?
This special report goes behind the scenes and observes that we are indeed facing the worst drought for over 200 years. The British Isles are smack in the middle of a meteorological freak which began in the early 70s. It's a global phenomenon - Russia, North America and even Australia are affected. In Britain even record-breaking torrential downpours would not make up for the water shortage this summer. It is already too late.
How will this affect crops and food supplies? Who will the Water Authority cut off first - domestic consumers or industry? How can we best conserve the water we have left?
