The show was called James May at the edge of Space, was broadcast by the BBC in July, it was excellent, James May is a presenter on the BBC has
several different information shows, latest being James May on the moon.
I'm not sure if BBC iplayer still has it available to watch, but I'm certain the whole show can be found somewhere, if I remember right it was
almost an hour long, and followed him through the training etc.
Also the week before he did a show about the Apollo Missions, at the end of that show was the run up to his training for this flight.
Incredible footage, guy was in tears when he saw the curvature of the Planet.
To add during the flight the pilot tells him the difference between lift and stall is only a matter of a couple of knots air speed.
