To Fly Like a Bird
For years, pioneer flyer
Gunter Roshelt has striven to crack the secret of a bird's flight. He's tried everything, from solar energy to his own son's muscle power.
But it was not until he flew across the Danube using a craft designed 170 years ago, that he got his latest inspiration. If birds fold their wings, then so should he. But would they work?

The career of Michael Watson , the young middleweight from Islington with the big punch, could take off tonight. He tops the bill at a major venue for the first time, and he's matched over ten rounds with 'Dangerous' Don Lee of the USA, the man who stopped Tony Sibson in 1984. Gary Mason and Mark Kaylor are the other big names on this Barrett/Duff promotion, which also features the British Light Middleweight Championship fight, over 12 rounds, between
Gary Cooper and Michael Harris. Commentator
