Not much of a documentary, more a collection of ol
Madacy Entertainment repackages this stuff from time to time and releases it again (and again!). In fact if you bought some of their previous products, then you may already have it. A lot of footage and I mean lots (over 18 hours), if you are a collector of this stuff, you will want this. Most of the footage is NASA pr films although there is some other old films as well. The first five discs are actual footage of the early space years (Apollo, Mercury, etc.). There are also some old documentaries as well. A lot of the footage is public domain. The next five discs are space shuttle footage and lots of it. If you are are a space nut these old original films are historical and interesting. All of these films are from the late '60s through the 80s. Nice pictures on biodegradable cases (There are 2 five packs). *No* attempt is made whatsoever to remaster these films. They are shown in there faded, well-worn '60s, '70s and '80s glory. This is a serious disappointment! (-1.5 stars). I expected some attempt to remaster these as DVD quality. A few of these nearly 50 year-old films are of such poor quality. This is *not* really a cohesive documentary and the absolute bare minimum amount is used to string this old footage together as a documentary series (-1.5 stars). The narrator often takes a break and leaves us with 10s of minutes of raw footage, this can actually get boring. I hope this explains what to expect.
