Documentary 25 minutes ~ Color
Mike and Mal Leyland, also known as The Leyland Brothers, were Australian explorers and documentary film-makers, best known for their popular television show, Ask the Leyland Brothers. The show ran on Australian television from 1976 until 1984.
One of those real characters that seem to be fast disappearing from the outback scene is part of this episode as the Leylands meet 65 year old George Howard who lives out of a covered wagon as he travels the outback. In the opal mining town of Lightning Ridge we see a house built entirely of old bottles. About 300 miles west of Alice Springs in the Northern Territory the Leylands film the fabulous Kings Canyon, a spectacular region of unsurpassed beauty. One of the most spectacular of all modern sports is featured as the Leylands look at hang gliding. With light weight cameras mounted on the glider, see what its like to actually fly one of these amazing kites.
