Comedian Ben Miller returns to his roots as a physicist to try to answer a seemingly simple question: What is a degree of temperature?
His search leads him to the frontiers of modern science as it meets the researchers who work in hot and cold temperatures in the universe, and a laboratory where they experienced some of the strange effects of quantum physics – a place where the super-cooled liquid simply pass through a solid crystal.
Ben set up your own weather station Met home office and research in this personal, passionate film highlighting the importance and accuracy of measurement in the 21st century.

In general, this program will communicate positively about science and about the importance of measuring temperature.
