Chilling Out

Thursday, March 29, 2012

Reporter: Liam Bartlett
Producer: Howard Sacre

Liam Bartlett has just returned from a place so piercingly cold, it gives him the shivers just thinking about it.

It's not Antarctica or even the top of Mount Everest. It's actually a tiny village in central Siberia.

In Oymiakon, it's so cold your eyelashes freeze together and you're constantly on guard against frostbite.

If it's warmer than minus 55 degrees Celsius, then it's a good day.

So rug up as we venture to the coldest town in the world.
