Program Description

On any given day there are almost 2,000 active thunderstorms in the atmosphere, and a single thunderstorm generates the energy of a nuclear power station. To say there is electricity in the air is an understatement. Raging Planet captures the lightning strike on film, and shows you how this beautiful phenomenon can become deadly if you’re in the wrong place during a storm. You’ll also learn why an incredible three out of four people are able to survive being zapped by these supercharged bolts.
