The physicist Dr. Helen Czerski begins this three-part look at temperature, beginning with coldness.

She looks into how we finally understood what cold is, how some scientists are able to manipulate material with high freezing temperatures, and how materials close to absolute zero behave in ways that may benefit technology.

From Ice to Fire: the Incredible Science of Temperature is on BBC Four at 21.00.
