Biography

Ian McCaskill joined the Met Office in 1961 and became a member of the BBC's forecasting team in October 1978. Apart from a break between 1983 and 1985, he stayed at the BBC until his retirement from the Met Office in 1998. He is a Fellow of the Royal Meteorological Society. As a TV weatherman, Ian was hugely popular for his cheery, sometimes eccentric and always entertaining style. Since retiring from regular weather forecasting duties, he has been a guest on numerous TV programmes including "Masterchef", "Style Challenge" and "Fit Club". His distinctive style has made him the most imitated TV weather forecaster, culminating in the ultimate accolade--his own Spitting Image puppet.

Paul Hudson, one of BBC "Look North"'s most popular presenters and famous for his cheerful presenting style and studio banter, explains the implications of global warming and its direct relation to severe weather conditions. He's also the BBC's environmental and climate change correspondent and gives talks on the subject to local organisations and schools.
