"Telescope examines the courageous but casualty-ridden Wallenda family, their career on the high wire and their day-to-day flirtation with death. A dramatic moment occurs when 12-year-old Tino Wallenda takes to the high wire for the first time. Also includes a profile of the other members of the family and footage of the famous three-decker, seven-man pyramid which brought death to two members of the troupe and crippled a third for life."
