Apollo 17 - The Untold Story...
DOCUMENTARY TRAILER UK (4 mins)
2012 marks the 40th anniversary of when man last stood upon the Moon. On the 25th May 1961, President John F. Kennedy of the United States of America, committed the resources of his nation and launched PROJECT APOLLO: The greatest technological undertaking in the history of mankind.

But in 1972, only two years after Neil Armstrong first walked on the moon, public and political interest in Apollo had dwindled. NASA was forced to cut the program short, making Apollo 17 man’s final mission to the moon. The World knows how the Apollo program began, but very few truly understand how it ended.

Yet Apollo 17's voyage to the moon was the crowning glory of man’s lunar exploration, breaking all previous records and making some ofthe greatest discoveries of the entire apollo program.

Featuring spectacular NASA footage and exclusive interviews with space scientists who worked on the Apollo programme.

This is the remarkable story of the determination and courage of a generation. A tribute to three brave astronauts and the thousands of men and women behind them during the final days of NASA’s Apollo program.
