Flying Doctors: Australian doctor service marks 90 years

Australia’s Royal Flying Doctor Service is marking its 90th anniversary.

It was conceived by Rev John Flynn in 1917 who wanted to establish a service to help communities living in remote areas and the first flights began in 1928.

BBC Travel Show’s Henry Golding looks back at the history of the service and takes a look at the inside of a modern Royal Flying Doctor plane.
