Storyline

Richard Hammond stands atop on the Wembley roof, in front of its record breaking arch to discover the Engineering Connections behind the new high tech home of English football. Richard reveals how the architects and engineers, under pressure to maintain Wembley's iconic status as a world class sporting and music venue, drew inspiration from a rock climbing knot, the first glider to carry a man, a high powered medieval crossbow, stealth aircraft technology and Archimedes' buoyancy theory that surfaced over two thousand years ago. Written by Darlow Smithson Productions
