Feeling the Heat
"Right before Oprah arrived, we added a last-minute stop to her itinerary: Uluru, a rock in the middle of the desert that is Australia's spiritual heart. Paul Simon had told her she had to go. When we went to scout it out, though, it was 120 degrees, we were dive-bombed by flies, and we started freaking out about the lack of air-conditioning and the lizards. But Oprah ended up having a wonderful time. Her heart was wide open to the experience." —Amy Coleman, supervising producer
