My daughter's fascinated by tornadoes and has a lot of questions, so I think she'd enjoy a good documentary with lots of storm footage and information about why they form. Any recs? We have Netflix, so I'd love to be able to get it there - they have several but none seem to have outstanding customer reviews ... there's an IMAX one, a National Geographic, and some episodes of a Discovery Channel series called Storm Chasers. I didnt' see anything from NOVA, which would be my first choice because NOVA always does a good job, but maybe I wasn't using the right keywords?

Thanks for any help you can give!

There is a NOVA one and it's available for instant watch. It's called Hunt for the Supertwister. The reviews for the show are good but many of them complained about a voice over for the visually impaired. Others didn't have the voice over on their film at all. Hope it works for you!

The Discovery Channel show is a reality show, I would say it is also about storm chasers, not just a lot of tornado footage.

Not all those who wander are lost

thank you so much! That Nova episode is just what I was looking for! We'll try the Stormchasers too.
