A fine five-part Smithsonian documentary of the U.S. space program, Apollo's Moon Shot of course focuses much of its attention on NASA's ultimate goal of landing men on the moon and bringing them back safely. Nodding acquaintance is given to the feats of test pilots of early experimental aircraft, a group from which the first astronauts were chosen. The early successes of the Soviet space program are touched upon as well, but the stars of the show are the Mercury, Gemini and Apollo missions which defined NASA and the space program in the U.S. Plenty of wonderful photographs and vintage video footage are shown, as well as interviews past and current with astronauts, NASA personnel, and other players. The Smithsonian Air and Space Museum dusts off many interesting items in its vast collection for viewers as well. As the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing approaches, this series provides a nice companion piece to the Apollo 11 feature documentary and the excellent Chasing the Moon three-parter on PBS' American Experience. Assuming of course that a steady dose of the space program doesn't burn you out like a Saturn V rocket engine.
