This fascinating documentary tells the story of the Apollo moon missions in the words of the men onboard the rockets. All of the surviving astronauts share their stories – apart from the reclusive Neil Armstrong – and they're a dignified, modest bunch who make it clear how breathtakingly wonderful the moon landings were while playing down their own heroic contributions. The astronauts' anecdotes and musings are accompanied by marvellous footage which has you asking how it is that something which happened nearly 40 years ago can still look like science fiction today.
