while i get the attraction of the adrenaline rush of storm chasing, it does seem like these people are a bit different

I loved "Storm Chasers" on the weather channel, I think, which featured Timmer and a lot of others chasers.  Timmer used this "tank" vehicle to sit in the eye of a tornado and film.   That show was cancelled years ago.  It sounds like this is a continuation of sorts.

Reed Timmer's vehicle the SRV Dominator.

Storm chases literally cause traffic jams and prevent emergency vehicle access.

Mythbusters did a special on how these Storm chasing vehicles stand up behind the engine of a 747, lol. I guess it would be like an F5 tornado.    They put a normal car behind the engine and it got blown several hundred feet, rolling and cartwheeling all the way.  The tank vehicles in Storm Chasers stood up pretty well, if I recall.

Here we go..found the segment.

I've been watching Planet Earth: The Hunt and South Pacific on BBC America. Does that count as "PBS-like"?

I loved PBS in the '70's.

I haven't watched it in years but Nova was one of my all time favorite PBS shows when I was a teen in the '70's. I also enjoyed the original "Cosmos" with Carl Sagan. "I, Claudius" was one my all-time favorite series.
