Apollo The Forgotten Films – Discovery Celebrates 50th Anniversary of Moon Landing

50th Anniversary of Moon Landing Celebration on Discovery Channel – Apollo The Forgotten Films

On July 20th, 1969, the world watched Neil Armstrong’s giant leap for mankind, but behind these iconic images is an unseen story. Now, 50 years later, Discovery and Science Channel will celebrate the Apollo 11 moon landing with a two-hour television event, APOLLO THE FORGOTTEN FILMS (9 PM IST), that will tell the complete story of this most audacious of missions, with footage not seen anywhere else. The archives reveal the incredible lengths an army of engineers, scientists and astronauts went to, to achieve America’s greatest technological feat.

  • Discovery channel is showcasing a special programming ‘Moon 50’ every Saturday and Sunday at 8 PM to mark the golden jubilee celebrations of the moon landing. This special stunt features programs on NASA’s missions to the moon like Above and Beyond: NASA’s Journey to Tomorrow, NASA’s Unexplained Files and Mysteries of Moonlanding.

America’s race to the moon was no simple mission. The 400,000 scientists and engineers who devoted their lives to realize the dream of a nation faced one obstacle after another. They overcame enormous challenges to build a rocket powerful enough to break free of earth’s gravity with a fearless group of astronauts, who risked their lives to fly a spaceship that would land on a precise spot on the moon, 250,000 miles away.

Apollo The Forgotten Films is produced for Discovery and Science Channel by Arrow Media. Executive Producers for Arrow are Tom Brisley and Sam Starbuck. Howard Swartz serves as Executive Producer for Discovery and Science Channel.
