Discover the power of flight in storytelling


Angels, putti, and dragons are found in many National Gallery paintings. They are all winged, of course, but how many of us stop to ask how they are able to fly?

UCL biologist Professor Roger Wotton sets out to answer this question, while Matthew Morgan asks why flying is such a common theme in storytelling.
