Cold

Donal experiences life at the extremes of cold, from ice storms to avalanches, frostbite to heart attacks – cold is a killer. His first stop is Greenland to the home of the Inuit to see how they survive temperatures of minus 40 and spends 24 hours with the Sirius sledge patrol who live for three months in this harsh environment. Donal is tested to see the effect extreme cold has on the body and meets two men who survived wild weather conditions in New York, when winds reached up to 145 mph in a freak storm. At Mount Washington he experiences the extremes of winter weather while exploring the hidden danger locked into ice and snow and talks to the survivors of Canada’s worst weather crisis, the ice storm of 1998.
