    Over the course of a year, we journey with the people and animals of Australia's Kimberley region in North West Australia: a vast, rugged and remote wilderness, bursting with character. the Kimberley region in the remote North West of Australia is one of the most extraordinary places on Earth. In sheer size it is three times the size of England – or around the size of California. Yet only 40,000 people live here, making the Kimberley the most unpopulated place on the planet. Almost half of the population are indigenous Australians, and in a landscape so ancient that it predates life on the planet, we see animals superbly adapted to the harsh and beautiful extremes of Outback Australia.

    We travel with these creatures as they work to survive the dramatic wet and dry seasons that punctuate this diverse wilderness. From its hot red heart, to its spectacular and pristine coastline, a particular breed of people also journey through this land. This is their story – past and present, tough and tender. Outback is a spectacular adventure into the life of Australia's unique and precious North West corner. 

    Episode One: The Kimberley Comes Alive
    The knock-em-down rains have come to an end and life in Outback Australia is blossoming, breeding and pulsating with energy. 

    Episode Two: The Dry Season
    It's the dry season but the pace in Outback Australia doesn't slow: there's cattle to muster, pearls to harvest, rock art to explore and new wings taking their first flight. 

    Episode Three: The Return of The Wet
    Only madness reigns in the Outback as the dry season extends: there's mustering of crocodiles to be done, and birds to be blasted – all in the name of game changing discovery.
