Firstly, the interviews with the surviving astronauts are wonderful. All of them are human, funny, honest, interesting and have new things to say. Neil Armstrong showing us his dry wit and faux-melodrama recapping was a highlight. How amazing that the doco team was able to bring out that side of his personality we've not seen before from a very shy and introspective man.
Other talking heads are of similar quality, Kranz, Borman especially. The conflict between Kraft and Carpenter is not sugar-coated either. You get both sides and make your own mind up.
Look, it's old footage. The sound isn't consistent. For audio/videophiles this isn't a test set. But it's a great history of the space program which focuses on the men and women involved, and how each step was painstakingly taken with great daring and risk, but also with courage and purpose and vision. That sounds overly sentimental, but to me it was inspiring as many other NASA docs have not been. And there is considerable footage that I hadn't seen before and most of it is amazing quality.
For anyone who wants a capsule of NASA's history, this one will do it. There are other supplemental sets which focus more on engineering aspects, or give you the complete mission reports, but this is an overview from the crews' perspective without getting into detail too deeply.
It's very well-edited, paced nicely and nothing is repeated or duplicated so no wasted time hearing the same old stuff again from somebody else, which happens in the older series.
I loved it. Right to the top of my faves list, up there with From the Earth To the Moon, in fact they make a nice couple - the dramatic re-enactment mini-series, followed by the real guys talking about what actually happened.
Great work Disco channel. Didn't think you had it in you any more.
The price was awesome as well.Individually priced at Kennedy Space Center the cost would have be $25.00 each IMAX.
