Lightbulb heads up

Programme on Ch4 in just under an hour (21.00 3/2/03); Leonardo's Dream Machines.

Asking if any of da Vinci's ideas would have worked if built, including the glider.

Apparently a three times world hang gliding champion refuses outright to test it!

might be worth a gander at any rate....

Only saw part of the programme, was the glider any more successful than the crossbow?
