Ravensbourne students and the BBC collaborated in bringing 'a series of charming films about our historical relationship with the weather'.
I’ve just watched all of these wonderful animations from the very talented Ravensbourne students for A British History in Weather and they are lovely – moving, subtle and beautifully done. What a fantastic partnership and wonderful companions to the radio output. Thank you so much - Clare McGinn, Head of BBC Radio & Music Production
