Patrick Moore presents this documentary marking the 40th anniversary of the launch of the Apollo space programme. From the launch pad disaster of the Apollo 1 mission that led to the deaths of the three astronauts Virgil Grissom, Ed White and Roger Chaffee to Neil Armstrong's first historical 'giant leap for mankind' onto the lunar surface, the film examines the great exploratory successes of the Apollo project as well as the human cost of its failures.
