|Lunar Module 5||I found this on HMV in the UK: Apollo: When The World Held Its Breath. This programme was the one broadcast a few years back on Apollo 13 - narrated by James Burke (yes?).|
And then I found this on the Amazon UK site.
Am I right in thinking that these are two different products? This is not available till December 2013! Is there a TV series planned by James Burke on the history of Apollo? The packaging is different. Anyone know?
|uk spacefan||I think that it's the same product as the product reviews on both websites are the same. Also this is a re-release as it was originally made several years ago. Would be interested to know why Amazon is not releasing it until 2013.|
|Blackarrow||I must dig this out of my video archives. I'm sure I have a VHS copy. It is not to be confused with "Apollo 13: To the Edge and Back" which was an American production, and well worth buying on DVD.|
|Buel||Sigh. I see that the release date has now been put back to 31 Dec 2020?|
|Blackarrow||As one obviously highly intelligent Amazon reviewer has pointed out, putting back the release date to 2020 is the same as saying: "We're not going to release this." Why they didn't just say that is beyond me.|
|Buel||Please could I ask did you find out if you have the copy on old school VHS?|
|killamarshian||I have a copy of this on DVD. I converted it from VHS a few years ago. If you are interested I could try posting it on YouTube. It is one of my favorite documentaries.|
|Lunar Module 5||Would be great if you could post it. |
So, just to widen this again — what was the name of the documentary that featured James Burke narrating the story of Apollo 13? It was, I think, either a Channel 4 or ITV (UK TV) production. Anyone remember?
|killamarshian||Luna Module 5, it is the same documentary.|
Here it is on YouTube: Apollo: When The World Held Its Breath. Enjoy.
