The final episode of Helen Czerski’s history of temperature looks into the world of heat.

The doctor looks into how we were able to use temperature to melt metals and develop new technology, from the Vikings, going into the industrial revolution, before moving into modern day technology, and how it could be used in things such as fusion power.

From Ice to Fire is on BBC Four at 21.00.
