About APOLLO Missions to the Moon
There has never been a documentary about the Apollo missions like this one before. That’s because the material gathered to tell the story has either never been seen – or never been put together this way before. This film has no narration. There are no interviews, other than ones recorded at the time. Instead, by weaving together media reports from around the world with long-forgotten NASA recordings and images, both from Mission Control and onboard the Apollo space capsules, the missions to the moon will be brought to stunning life in real time.
- Previously unreleased NASA audio synced to film footage to new high-definition transfers of Apollo mission footage.
- Never-before-seen still photographs from National Geographic staff photographers who were given special access to Apollo missions.
- Never-before-heard local radio broadcasts pull from University and other Special Collections as well as radio air checks from archival collectors.
- Never-before-heard mission audio from Apollo 11 and 13.
