Mission Control: The Unsung Heroes of Apollo

Mission Control: The Unsung Heroes of Apollo
Documentary, History | 2017
NR. 1hr 41min DIRECTOR: David Fairhead TUESDAY FILM SERIES

At the heart of the Apollo space program and a remarkable decade of achievement was the team who worked in Mission Control.They were born against a backdrop of economic turmoil and global conflict.  They were setting out on what JFK called: "The most hazardous, dangerous, and greatest adventure upon which mankind has ever embarked" and through their testimony--and the supporting voices of Apollo astronauts and modern NASA flight directors--the film takes us from the faltering start of the program through the Mercury and Gemini missions, the tragedy of the Apollo 1 fire to the glories of the Moon landings.

An engrossing behind-the-scenes look at the flight controllers and support crews that helped America win the space race.
Joe Leydon, Variety
A well-crafted, revealing British documentary reuniting the surviving team members entrusted with safely taking astronauts to the moon and back.
