Not their best episode
27 April 2011 | by (NYC/FL) – See all my reviews

This series profiles two important days in history that have some link. This episode was not a good example of that form. Both the moon landing and the Wright Brothers flights were the culminations of long series of events. While it might have been interesting to see some of the events leading up these momentous days, the approach here was flawed. Very little detail was presented that added much to the viewer's appreciation of these events or the understanding of them. Other episode in this series have been informative and the minute by minute buildup that the show uses does often work but I felt that these two events were handled on only a very superficial level.
