The Apollo Years New!

"I found it very interesting in that there is no narration.  Good film sequences… great reminders of the people and things that led to the first landing.  Good job."

- Russell L. "Rusty" Schweickart
, Apollo 9 Astronaut



"Letting the people, events, and images speak for themselves brings an unmatched authenticity to this remarkable chapter in human exploration.  Very well done."

-
Neil deGrasse Tyson, Astrophysicist and Frederick P. Rose Director, Hayden Planetarium, American Museum of Natural History, New York City




"For those of us who witnessed the Apollo program it brings back memories and reminds us how things have changed (some unrelated to the main theme, like flight controlers sitting at their duty stations smoking!).  For younger viewers it will serve as a good entrée for discovering and understanding the early space program."

-
Alan W. Harris, Space scientist with North American Rockwell (builder of the Command Module) during the time of Apollo, later with Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL)

“The Apollo Years” 139 min. $34.95; Color. M Moidel, Space Viz Productions, Astronautics.

“The two-plus-hour The Apollo Years (produced to coincide with the 40th anniversary of the 1969 lunar landing) begins with the doomed Apollo 1 flight in 1967, in which all members of the three-man crew are killed during a training exercise. Following this tragedy, we see the unmanned Apollo missions 2 through 6. The remainder of the film features manned missions 7 through 17 (1972). The Apollo 11 moon landing is undoubtedly considered the program's greatest accomplishment. Each segment introduces the astronauts involved and illustrates the subtle changes not only in equipment and technology but also in mission control procedures. Unfortunately, this unnarrated visual history is not of the quality viewers accept as standard from PBS and NOVA productions. The footage here is real and is sometimes distorted, gray, and grainy. The footage following Apollo 11 is clearer, indicating the overall improvement in film technology and technique. Will viewers want to wade through this lengthy historical archive of the space program? A shorter version may grasp a larger audience; still, this tribute to our space pioneers is recommended for most libraries.

- LaRoi Lawton, Bronx Community Coll. LRC, CUNY for The Library Journal.
