My father has been going on about a sketch that he says he saw on television in the 70's, he thinks it's called "history of flight".
I have only found "man powered flight" and "flying lessons" and they are not the sketch in question.
If I have this right he is looking for a sketch which compiled a lot of old black and white footage of ridiculous flying machines with narration over the top of it.
Anyway if anyone has heard of such a sketch or remembers seeing it I'm trying desperately to track it down for him for Christmas. It would help if I had the right title..
I have all the DVD's for flying circus and have not spotted it so far and so am wondering if this is only around on bootleg?
Thanks very much for any help you can provide.

I have also just found "A short history of flight" by terry gilliam from 1972 listed on a french website. Does anyone suppose this could be the sketch in question?
Can't find the actual sketch itself though...
