As the world prepares to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first manned lunar landing – one of our greatest achievements ever – 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 full sweep of NASA’s Apollo Space Program, including all 12 crewed missions. 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. The missions are experienced not from modern-day retrospective but through TV coverage, radio broadcasts, home movies, NASA film and never-before-heard Mission Control audio. Primary source media offers a raw and genuine look at how the Apollo missions were presented to the public and what this historic program means to us today and for our future. APOLLO: Missions to the Moon is not just a film; it’s an experience.
