Explore the astonishing 300-million-year dynasty of flight
Today, over 100 billion creatures fly through the air: from nectar-drinking hummingbirds to bizarre, winged lizards. Human beings have always been fascinated by the act of flight, and it is only now in the 21st century that we can truly observe the cumulation of over 300 million years of evolution.
Thanks to cutting-edge image capture methods, scientists are able to document and study the aerodynamics and engineering of wings and feathers in unprecedented detail.
Our mission is to share these findings in the most innovative ways with the widest audience possible. Following on from our previous productions which were nominated for no fewer than 5 Emmys – ‘Micro Monsters’, ‘First Life’, and ‘Kingdom Of Plants’ – we launched our most ambitious co-production yet with David Attenborough’s Conquest of the Skies.
