Many of you will know Kerry Slingsby or at least know of him, as he was indeed once King of the Outback Skies - a legend. The documentary of the same name aired on TV in 1998, but has since been sitting unavailable due to copyright laws on a dusty shelf in Canberra at the National Film & Sound Archive of Australia (NFSA)... until now.

We were determined to get this important historical footage of Outback Australia to the public again. So, after a 9 month journey tracking down and talking to the producer and director, navigating through lawyers to find the rightful owner(s), then successfully getting copyright approval from Prime Media Group to have the footage released TODAY for public viewing for the first time in almost 20 years... it is finally here!
