First broadcast: on BBC One Yorks & LincsLatest broadcast: on BBC One Yorkshire

Marty Jopson tells the incredible story of how northern inventions have helped us to conquer the skies. He tells the story of the world's first manned flight, made in North Yorkshire over 50 years before the Wright Brothers, and the invention that shrunk the world in the 20th century: the jet. He brings the story up to date with the Rotherham firm inventing unmanned aircraft to do everything from monitoring polluting ships, to finding people lost at sea. Show less
