Summary
  • "After World War II drew to a close, a new conflict began. The Cold War between the Soviet Union and the United States spurred an engineering and scientific competition known as the 'Space Race.' From beginning to end, the American public's attention was captivated, and the various developments by the Soviet and U.S. space programs were heavily covered in the national media."--The container
  • "Renowned documentarian and filmaker David L. Wolper introduced American television audiences to the very first report about the Soviet and American space race (The Race for Space) which later earned an Oscar nomination. This groundbreaking television event, along with 2 subsequent documentary features narrated by Mike Wallace (60 Minutes), captures the worldwide phenomenon of space exploration and unlocking the mysteries of the universe."--The container
  • "Journey to the Moon: The Apollo 11 Story is an original documentary on the Apollo 11 moon landing which includes reflections by the crew of Apollo 11: Neil Armstrong, 'Buzz' Aldrin and Michael Collins.
