This series was a British production that included extensive second unit shooting in Central Australia overseen by Michael Noonan. The central characters were the doctor, the pilot, and the nurse. Each episode was self-contained, each covering a separate medical case.
'In the first episode, American Doctor Greg Graham secures leave of absence from his Research Institute in San Francisco to stand in as Flying Doctor in Australia, for old friend Doctor Jim Harrison whose eyes have been injured in an accident.'
