Apollo 13 - When the World Held Its Breath DVD


Apollo When the World Held It's Breath covers the development of the US space program concentrating on the almost-disaster of Apollo 13 where two-hundred thousand miles into its journey to the moon an explosion ripped through its service module leaving astronauts James Lovell Fred Haise and John Jack Swigert with a limited supply of oxygen water and food. Against all odds they came back and almost 25 years after the doomed mission this celebrated documentary told their story. Presented by James Burke this documentary includes interviews with the key players and covers... the highs and lows of the Apollo lunar project from the tragedy of Apollo 1 to Apollo 11's world-changing moon-walk and beyond.
