TWENTY FIVE YEARS IN SPACE
Producer, Max Whitby ; Horizon editor Graham Massey.
Reviews developments in space flight from 1957, when Sputnik was launched,
through to the landing on the moon; and the transmission of pictures of Mars
back to Earth.
It is a nicely paced documentary that shows the progress of man in space from 1957 to the space shuttle and the early space stations. It provides some interesting contrasts in UK vs US views on space.
Some fascinating panel segments with members of England scientific community commenting on the meaning of space travel.
It finishes with some speculation from the sixties of the meaning of man in space.
Lots of raw footage with no re-enactments, no "voice of god" overdubs.
From old Beta Tape from TV in 1982. Transferred to VHS years later, then digitised on a Pioneer DVD Recorder more years later.
Image rolls a bit in places (actually more than I'm happy with), however it is the only version of it I have, but in spite of this it is a very good documentary.
