A Horizon episode exploring Britain's extreme weather airs tonight, with Dr Helen Czerski and TV meteorologist John Hammond focusing on recent extreme winters, including the 2013/14 floods and previous sub-zero winters.

They will ask whether they are in fact becoming more extreme and explore what causes such intense weather events, including the strange behaviour of the Jet Stream.
