  • Episode Description
  • Daedalus was a great inventor but the wanted more than anything to fly. His son was clumsy but his nephew was of great promise and inventiveness. Whilst swinging his nephew one day, sees Daedalus let his nephew fall accidentally off the roof of his house, where the boy dies. Thus Daedalus and his son flee Athens and eventually end up in Crete where he ends up making toys on the street. There he falls under the eye of King Minos who needs him to build a cage, a very special cage; to hold a creature, a creature that is a curse on the king's family. So Daedalus uses his genius to build a labyrinth - a labyrinth for the Minotaur; but as the king and Daedalus are the only ones to know the escape route, the evil King Minos locks Daedalus and his son up. After escaping the labyrinth the pair have to escape Crete, Daedalus builds wings, one for himself and one for his son - Icarus...moreless

    • This is the last story in the series and ties nicely with the first, as it shows how the labyrinth was created and what for - the Minotaur in the first story.
