Stephen Tompkinson (him of Wild at Heart and, more importantly, Drop The Dead Donkey fame) once again takes to the skies in this new three-part documentary series. Yep, he's done it before. Having previously journeyed across the African continent in a hot air balloon, in this new epic challenge he travels to Australia with experienced balloon pilot Robin Bachelor to explore its rich and diverse landscape and wildlife and to take part in the country’s largest balloon competition, the Canowindra Balloon Challenge. The trip kicks off in dramatic fashion when Stephen's maiden flight over South Australia's Flinders Ranges ends in a crash-landing. Undeterred, he and pilot Robin Bachelor press on to the Barossa Valley, where they learn wine-making techniques, before completing a flight over the River Murray.
