I would buy both. This DVD reminds me of "For All Mankind" because it is made from the classic 16mm film footage. The soundtrack is also very nice.
But I have to admit that I had not seen some of the launch footage, so it was worth something. I much prefer David Sington's "In the Shadow of the Moon."
It tells the story from launch to landing and includes over 3 hours of additional footage from the NASA archives. My favorite bit is when Buzz says (while climbing out of the capsule for the first time) "I'll be sure not to lock the door behind me." priceless!
Ive read almost all the astronaut books. Its nice to see some footage of the actual missions. Glad to have this DVD to show my kids and eventually their kids the past glories of Apollo manned space exploration. Sadly this is not taught in school. Its important history. Have a family night and show this DVD to your kids.Its nice now and then seeing something educational rather than some of the mindless crap movies that are put out today. They maybe have no interest at first but explain to them so much of the technology they use today came from the space program. Tell them maybe someone they grow up with may someday go to the Moon or Mars.

In the first couple of sentences the narrator/documentarian incorrectly states the date of the moon "contact" incorrectly as July 16th. Puts the rest in doubt.Published 19 months ago by Awriter
