Over the past few years, ABC New reporter Paul Lockyer mounted four separate filming expeditions to Lake Eyre, often with cameraman John Bean and pilot Gary Ticehurst.
They captured extraordinary footage of nature at work on a grand scale, as the desert bloomed and water flowed all the way to the parched mouth of the Murray River in South Australia. Birds flocked to the outback in record numbers and the rivers and lakes were brimming with fish.
Tragically, on the last of those expeditions in August 2011 the ABC helicopter crashed at Lake Eyre, killing Paul John and Gary
The Lake Eyre Commemorative Edition combines the best footage of those expeditions and show off Lake Eyre in all its many moods. It also contains special tributes to the three men.
