Product description

This engaging film examines one of nature’s most maligned phenomenon – the cloud. To most of us they are dreary, rain-laden objects of misery blocking out the sun and darkening our skies. However, for many around the world, they are things of beauty, mystery and power.

Gavin Pretor-Pinney’s lifelong love of clouds led to the formation of The Cloud Appreciation Society. Initially a tongue-in-cheek movement the Society now has thousands of members all over the globe, each dedicated to greater understanding of the majestic clouds.

In this fascinating programme, Gavin explains his own devotion to clouds and meets people whose lives have been touched by them, including a cloud racer, cloud physic and the astonishing paragliding champion Ewa Wisnierska, who relives the terrifying moments when she was almost killed by a cloud.

We discover the different types of clouds, how they are formed and what they do – including watching Gavin attempt to create his own cloud formation, turn fog into snow and convince scientists to endorse a new cloud classification.

There’s also a chance to explore the influence of clouds on science and art, including the painting of John Constable and poetry of Shelley.

Accompanying Gavin’s fascinating journey is truly breathtaking footage of stunning cloud formations, including spectacular aerial sequences offering an unrivalled view of these remarkable natural wonders.

After watching Cloudspotting you will never look at a cloud-filled sky in the same way again.
