Former Head of the BBC Weather Centre: climate change and environmental speaker.
"My first love has always been explaining the consequences of climate change if we persist in throwing up greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. On this subject I put forward the hypotheses on such things as the Sahara Desert moving north into the Mediterranean; that London's summer climate by 2050 would be the same as that in southern France of today; that malarial mosquitoes would invade our shores - all of which have now been taken onboard, now, by mainstream commentators on Global warming."
As well as being a big name on the after dinner and business circuit, top television weatherman Bill Giles has been performing a unique one man two hour stage show for many years entitled " The Weather Show "in which he talks about the funny behind-the-scenes happenings at the BBC weather centre that the public don't normally get to know about.
Bill, who was head weather man at the BBC, has been broadcasting on radio since 1972 and on television since 1975 taking the Weather Centre from the fall-off magnetic symbols to the present day world beating computer graphics.
In 1994 he won the Scientific prize at the Paris International Festival for Weather Broadcasting and was also voted the United Kingdom's most believable and understandable weather broadcaster and in the 1995 New Years Honours was made an Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire by Her Majesty The Queen.
Bill recorded a television series of twelve half-hour programmes on the specific implications of Climate change in southwest England.
He also lectured on this subject to several conferences for Cambridge County Council; Bracknell Forest Council; The Earth Centre, Doncaster; the East of England Tourist Board;Southeast Renewable Energy Conference at Reading and he chaired the meeting at Intech at Winchester. His main contribution to this subject is that he can translate the language of pure science into one which everyone can understand.
He introduced a show explaining the effects of Global Warming* on the environment, dealing with the consequences of the heating up of our planet and why all businessmen should be taking it seriously and planning for the next century.
Bill has also written and published two books, Weather Observation and The Weather Story, and is in the process of writing books concerned with Global Warming, Weather and Gardening, Children's Weather stories similar to The Snowman as well as a book on the Weather Shows.
