A four-part documentary (each part being an hour long) is airing on the Washington-area PBS station WETA starting, well, nine minutes ago.

The first episode, "From the Ground Up", will re-air a couple of times this week. It is probably airing on other PBS stations around the country.

This series originally aired on the BBC in 2009 and was produced by Dangerous Films, the same company behind "When We Left Earth" and the docudrama "Moon Shot".
A definitive, primetime guide, The Space Age: NASA's Story offers a fresh look at an amazing organisation and mankind's quest to understand the universe. Blending stunningly restored footage with revealing, insightful and engaging interviews with the people who were there - the astronauts, family members and journalists - this is an epic story of the heroes, the triumphs and the tragedies of space exploration. Starting with NASA's beginnings in the Cold War, the series follows the iconic moments of space exploration from the race to get the first man in space to the first steps on the moon. And with triumph and achievement comes risk and disaster, as the series follows the white-knuckle suspense of Apollo 13 and the tragedy of the shuttle Challenger. Intelligent, inspiring and accessible, The Space Age is a complete history of mankind's journey into space.

Here in Houston, it starts on Wednesday, Jan. 12 at 7:00 p.m. and each episode will be repeated the following Monday night at 10:00. According to the director of programming for HoustonPBS, "this won't be showing everywhere, it's not a PBS program. We had to buy it directly from the BBC."
