Network stations in Australia have started airing a coverage of Oprah Winfrey's visit to their country. Lengthy sneak peeks of "Oprah's Australian Adventure" show how the talk show queen raised the temperature on an open stage and the footage of how Hugh Jackman got one of his eyes hurt during a stunt for the show.
One press took the economic point of view of Oprah's visit to Down Under. In a press conference, Oprah said, "I am now an unofficial, I've made myself an unofficial ambassador of Australia. And I have the biggest mouth on Earth. A big mouth and a big platform." She also promised to return to the continent.
It is revealed that all the audience in her outdoor show went home with a bag of goodies including an expensive jewelry. An audience testified, "She's just so inspirational." One of the sneak peeks include also a footage of her flying over the blue Great Barrier Reef, her watching the sunset at Uluru and her climbing the Sydney Harbor Bridge.
The special "The Oprah Winfrey Show" will air in two parts in January 2011. In addition to Jackman, Russell Crowe, Jay-Z, Nicole Kidman, Keith Urban, Bon Jovi and Steve Irwin's family are guests of the episode.
