Storyline

Daedalus was the greatest craftsman in Greece. Unfortunately his skill did not rub off on his son, Icarus. Jealosy and frustration forces the pair into a life on the run. Cruel King Minos of Crete asks Daedalus to design a maze to imprison the creature known as the Minataur, then locks Daedalus and his son inside the labyrinth to make sure only he knows the secrets it hides. But Daedalus escapes, and builds a pair of wings for himself and Icarus to escape Crete. Written by The TV Archaeologist

Quotes

The Storyteller: Daedalus, the greatest crafstman in Greece, there was no one like him. He was born in Athens.
The Dog: Like us.
The Storyteller: And he learned the art of making from the godess Athena herself. But his greatest dream was to fly, to sour through the clouds like a bird.
The Dog: Is that why his son had wings? Did they both grow wings?
The Storyteller: No, no, they didn't. Poor Icarus had nothing so graceful as wings. Even his hands were awkward and clumsy.
