Narrated by award-winning actor Gary Sinise, WHEN WE LEFT EARTH is the incredible story of humankind's greatest adventure, as it happened, told by the people who were there. From the early quest of the Mercury program to put a man in space, to the historic moon landings, through the Soyuz link-up and the first un-tethered space walk by Bruce McCandless, this is how the space age came of age. The vivid HD series features vintage rushes and all the key onboards filmed by the astronauts themselves. The sequences are captured by cameras onboard the spaceships, enabling the series to tell the stories in a depth never seen before.Written by
Badly made children's documentary still worth a watch
Firstly. This documentary has a lot of great information and some great recordings from NASA's history. They are are must watch for any human being no matter in what documentary. But... it is made by amateurs.
There is a an added shaky-cam effect to all the modern interviews. Why did they add it? I don't think anyone can answer this question. It also seems like they added it to the old recordings from their offices, but it could just be bad recordings. They also select the scenes where the old camera zooms? Why? I don't know. The worst thing is that we actually don't get to see any scene for over 10 seconds. But the average length of a scene is probably 3 seconds. And every scene is split up by small comments/interview segments. Why? Another thing is that they exaggerate everything. Everything is extremely dangerous, unsafe and stupid to even try... according to this documentary. They make something awesome and exiting seem more ridiculous than it actually is. Why? I don't know.
It is very much worth seeing. But it is very badly made and should be remade. I love space and NASA so I gave it a 6. But it is an amateurish documentary. The documentary makers should be very much ashamed and NASA should be proud.
greetings, a Russia man.
