Project Apollo

The story of NASA's most famous missions which saw man first step foot on the moon.

The year is 1961. The space race is in full flow and the USA are lagging well behind. Under mounting pressure John F Kennedy stands before congress and declares that they will put a man on the moon before the decade is through.

So begins the story of the Apollo Program. This is the third in our series of films using archive footage to look at America’s first steps into space, this time focussing on NASA’s mission to the moon. Watch the Mercury and Gemini films now.
