Coming to National Geographic Channel UK on 8 September 2008 will be Richard Hammond's Engineering Connections.
As part of the Big New Mondays on National Geographic, this 4-part series is fronted by the Top Gear favourite, and examines how some of the world's engineering marvels owe their existence to often surprisingly simple ideas.
Tune in and discover just what the world's largest passenger plane, the Airbus A380, has in common with an eagle's wing, a bicycle pump and an ancient bow!
A special website with videos, pics and a Q&A with Richard, has been set up at www.natgeotv.com/engineering-connections
