Apollo When the World Held Its 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.

Featuring interviews with Lovell and Haise, the astronauts families, flight director Gene Krantz, Mission Operations director Christopher Kraft, astronauts Mike Collins and Buzz Aldrin and cosmonaut Alexei Leonov, Apollo: To the Edge and Back offers not only unprecedented insights into the Apollo 13 mission, but also an overview of the Cold War rivalry which initiated the Apollo programme and the near-fatal mission s impact in rekindling waning interest in space exploration.
