Engineering Connections Wembley Stadium

Richard Hammond stands atop of 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, which surfaced over two thousand years ago.
