After  World  War  II  drew  to  a  close,  a  new conflict  began.   The  Cold  War  between  the Soviet  Union  and  the  United  States  spurred an  engineering  and  scientific  competition known  as  the  "Space  Race."  From  beginning
to  end,  the  American  public's  attention  was captivated, and the various developments by the  Soviet  and  U.S.  space  programs  were heavily covered in the national media.   Renowned  documentarian  and  filmmaker David  L.  Wolper  introduced  American television  audiences  to  the  very  first  report about  the  Soviet  and  American  space  race (The  Race  for  Space)  which  later  earned  an Oscar nomination.   


This  groundbreaking  television  event,  along with  2  subsequent  documentary  features, capture  the  worldwide  phenomenon  of space  exploration  and  unlocking  the mysteries of the universe.

5.0 out of 5 stars a recommendable set of space documentaries March 4, 2012
Format:DVD
Being a baby boomer, I fondly remember the various David Wolper documentaries, especially "Biography" and space ones such as these. They're well done on all levels and the film material used here is, no doubt, the best that could be found. The picture may not be as sharp as some might prefer but the contents are more than worth it. Highly recommended.

Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
My husband watches everything he can on the space program, but he didn't have this, & it's interesting to see the actual footage and learn the background.

This is a very educational set of DVD's to have to learn the beginnings of the space race and the effect it had upon the world at the time it began and is still having today.

5.0 out of 5 stars Definitely worth it December 18, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
My daughter had an essay assignment on the Space Race. We live very close to the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum, so we went to their museum store to see what they might have. They didn't have this in, but recommended it. Even though it was done before the moon-landing, its still a good production. The interviews however, are blatantly orchestrated and read apparently from a prompter, but the information on people and events is engaging. The film footage adds nicely.
