March 27 & April 3 (8-9 p.m. ET/PT)

For the first and last time, "The Oprah Winfrey Show" opens its doors to invite viewers behind the scenes for the making of the farewell season. In this two-part episode, the show goes on location "down under" to Australia with 300 lucky audience members. The producers face their biggest challenges yet � huge crowds, stifling heat, and working in a foreign country. The trip included appearances by Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Nicole Kidman and other well-known Aussies. In part two, Jackman's headline-making entrance goes wrong, bringing Oprah's show at the Sydney Opera House to a screeching halt.
