Storyline

In 1961, when President Kennedy pledged to put a man on the Moon by the end of the decade, no rocket existed with the power or capability to rise to the challenge. In order to win the race to Space, the United States would need to establish a multi-billion dollar space program. One man; Werner Von Braun, believed he had the knowledge and vision to make Kennedy's dream a reality. With the American public galvanised and the expertise of over 200,000 scientists and engineers, Von Braun masterminded the development of the Saturn V; the rocket that flew 24 men to the Moon and launched the greatest adventure in the history of exploration. This is the story of the most powerful machine ever built, and the men and women who believed it could fly. Using visual effects, stunning NASA footage and expert interviews with Apollo space scientists, this inspirational film tells the story of the colossal challenges NASA faced to fulfill Kennedy's pledge. With the accolade of flying 24 men safely to ... Written by Anonymous

Good doc, terrible sound mixing
27 July 2018 | by hotdefinitionSee all my reviews

Whomever did the sound on this did a woeful job - many points you can barely hear the commentator, the talking heads are far louder than the commentary track and some of the backgroud music is too loud or completely out of place and distracting.

A good documentary on a great topic let down by poor sound mixing!
