As the world prepares to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first manned lunar landing, Emmy and Peabody Award-winning filmmaker Tom Jennings (Challenger Disaster: Lost Tapes, Diana: In Her Own Words) uses his signature style of first-person storytelling to create an immersive account that spans the breadth and depth of NASA's Apollo Space Program. In APOLLO: Missions to the Moon, newly transferred film and never-before-heard audio recordings recount the United States remarkable journey to land on the Moon before 1970. With no narration and no modern-day talking heads; the missions are experienced entirely through archival TV coverage, radio broadcasts, home movies, NASA film and Mission Control audio that is expertly edited together to create an eyewitness-like experience.
