ABC News mounted two filming expeditions by helicopter to follow the floodwaters from north Queensland down the great outback rivers to Lake Eyre and record the amazing cycle of life. A story told through the eyes of one of Australia's leading environmental scientists, Professor Richard Kingsford and the people who've made their lives in the arid Lake Eyre Basin.Summary:  For the first time in years, the water flowed all the way to Lake Eyre, the huge salt pan in the dead heart of the continent. ABC TV reporter Paul Lockyer covered the drought in 2009, and now returns to Lake Eyre 12 months later to investigate the floods sweeping across much of south-west Queensland. The deluge was delivered by a series of tropical lows which swept through the middle of Australia.
