David Beckham sets himself the challenge of a lifetime: playing a football match on all seven continents of the globe and getting back in time for his own star-studded UNICEF fundraising match at Old Trafford. Playing the beautiful game in some of the most challenging and remote locations of the world, David discovers how important football is to the many different people he meets and plays with and confirms some universal truths about the game itself: it's unique ability to inspire and unite people across the world. The first three games see David play in some of the countries for which he is a UNICEF ambassador: tribes in the jungles of Papua New Guinea; children from an earthquake-damaged school in Nepal and footballers from three African countries at a refugee camp in the middle of the desert near Djibouti. David flies on to Argentina where he plays in urban Buenos Aires with a community youth team from the infamous Boca Juniors then to the surreal icy landscape of Antarctica.

Mt Everest - 29,000 feet - the highest point on Earth - captivating and deadly. In the 1920s to conquer Mt Everest was the greatest challenge remaining in a golden age of adventure. Everest was the edge of heaven, where many believed no human could survive. George Mallory dreamed of being the first man to climb Everest but on June 8, 1924, dressed in gabardine and hobnailed boots, he and his fellow climber, Sandy Irvine, were last seen 800 feet below the summit. Seventy-five years after Mallory and Irvine vanished, mountaineer Conrad Anker, took part in an expedition looking for their bodies high on Everest.

Over the past few years, ABC News 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. Tragically, on the last of those expeditions in August 2011 the ABC helicopter crashed at Lake Eyre, killing Paul, John and Gary. This 90-minute documentary combines the best footage of those expeditions and shows off Lake Eyre in all its many moods. It also contains special tributes to the three men.
