Storyline

At the heart of the Apollo program was the special band of brothers in Mission Control. The feature documentary film Mission Control: The Unsung Heroes of Apollo tells their stories, describing the rural homesteads and smokestack towns they came from, and the remarkable team they became. The film consists of interviews with those who worked in Mission Control and astronauts, enhanced by extraordinary archive, stunning VFX and an original orchestral score. The film covers the first journeys to the moon by Apollo 8 and Apollo 11, and the huge effort required to save the crew of Apollo 13. Written by Keith Haviland

A really good documentary
21 July 2018 | by mitchell-15286See all my reviews

This is an actual good documentary which in my opinion is underated. Interviews with numerous engineers that worked on the apollo program as wel as archival footage mixed with VFX really give a good representation of what the missions were like and how special of an achievement the apollo missions were.
