Royal Society Podcasts: Robert FitzRoy FRS: sailing into the storm (mp3)
John Gribbin is the author of more than a hundred books of popular science, including 'FitzRoy: the remarkable story of Darwin's Captain and the invention of the weather forecast'. In this talk, he discusses FitzRoy's career as captain of HMS Beagle and as a pioneering meteorologist.
Postscript: I have now listened to the podcast. It was very interesting, although the recording quality was pretty poor.
