Shows how we are now moving to learn to modify the weather to our own ends. The film offers some examples of how weather modification is practised today, and also takes viewers to the Nile Basin where a meteorological survey evokes a far-off dream of making some of the world’s driest desert terrain fertile and fruitful.
