Written by Richard Wade.
Starring Dudley Foster as Edward Hastings, Maggie Jones as Florence Hastings

'I flew like a bird, Florence, like a bird'. The head of the Hastings family did fly and flew in a glider made by the Special Effects Department of the BBC to drawings published in an edition of "Popular Mechanics", a magazine of the period. If you are a practical father then you are invited to share in the delights and disasters of leaving the ground 'like a bird'.
