My Weather - Dr. Lindsay Bennett

I can date my fascination with the weather back to first watching storm chasing documentaries on TV at about age 14. I used to irritate my Geography teacher by always asking, “When are we going to learn about the weather?” I was particularly interested in the US scientists conducting tornado research, putting themselves right in the storm’s path to collect data with their state of the art mobile radar systems. Little did I know then that 12 years later I would be working with those same scientists and radars, and chasing storms myself!

These were essentially men of their times, be that of The Enlightenment, the Crimean War, the days of the British Empire or of two World Wars.

The Paul Hudson Weather Show

In the time I’ve worked at the BBC I’ve made programmes about American blues musicians performing in the former Soviet Union, young offenders being rehabilitated through the arts, Royal Navy convoys protecting NATO peace conferences. I’ve interviewed high profile recording artists, read news bulletins and reported live on breaking news stories. And whatever the inherent difficulties of these assignments were, they were at least tangible and there were facts - a story to tell.
