PIGS CAN FLY
By
HELEN LANDAU
performed as a radio play

Tells the story of the early flying pioneers led by Charles Rolls and the engineering exploits of the Short Brothers and their battle to gain recognition not only from the Government, but the public and the press. It also describes the tragic love affair between Charles Rolls and Vera Hedges Butler blighted by the strict class divisions of the period.
An outrageous stunt by Frank McClean finally convinced the Government that Pigs Can Fly.
