I did a short piece for BBC Inside Out that was broadcast on Monday evening. It can be viewed via this link (within the UK, not sure about elsewhere). My bit is from about the 21st minute onwards.
In the film there is some weather lore and a nice example of the 'colour compass' lichen, Xanthoria, and the fresh air indicator, Usnea.
