Spacecraft Documentary Series from Fox in June
Fox Home Entertainment have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of three triple-disc DVD box-sets documenting mankind’s greatest achievements in space for 27th June 2005. Apollo 11, The Mighty Saturns: Saturn V and The Mighty Saturns: Saturn I and IB originate from the NASA archives and are priced at £34.99 each.
Apollo 11 chronicles the events of July 20, 1969, when the world watched spellbound as the human race accomplished its single greatest technological achievement; man walked on the moon. Apollo 11 presents this momentous event in detail with over ten hours of footage!
An entire disc is devoted to the famous moonwalk, and includes the original television broadcast as well as rare colour footage shot inside the lunar module. Join the crew in the preparation stages of the mission as you witness rehearsals of the walk, and get an insider’s view of the spacecraft itself with the onboard film and television transmissions.
The Mighty Saturns: Saturn V takes a close-up look at the most powerful rocket ever built and the power behind the Apollo space missions. The DVD features interviews with Saturn veteran engineers and behind the scenes footage of engine tests, rollouts, pad operations and more.
The Mighty Saturns: Saturn I and Saturn IB detail the development of the earlier Saturn rockets. This box-set includes spectacular multi-angle images from every launch of these rockets as well as extensive interviews with Saturn program veterans and rare material from the onboard cameras.
