The word ‘weather’ is at its best when it has an extreme, violent or murderous embellishment lurking about in the same sentence.

BBC4 mined the thesaurus and went the whole hog on Monday – and then applied the same to waves. Meanwhile, BBC3 revealed the cost of fame – it’s too high.

BBC4’s Timeshift: Killer Storms And Cruel Winters – The History Of Extreme Weather was the channel’s best, with 690,000/3% at 9pm on Monday; two repeats added another 274,000. At 10pm, Could We Survive A Mega-Tsunami? achieved 600,000/3.7%.

At 10pm on Monday, BBC3’s quick-turnaround doc Tulisa: The Price Of Fame achieved 620,000/ 3.8%; three repeats added 924,000.

E4’s best was Wednesday’s Holly- oaks at 7pm with 1.1 million/6%, just ahead of The 100, which achieved 1 million/5% on Monday at 9pm. ITV2’s best was Wednesday’s The Only Way Is Essex, which netted 860,000/5% at 10pm.
