The public policy issues behind the Apollo Space Program

These are two documentaires, each an hour long, about aspects of the Apollo 11 Moon landing story that never get told. Apollo is always the story of the people at Mission Control and Neil Armstrong and the
engineers that accomplished this incredible technological feat. Very few people then look at what happened in Washington, DC. We very nearly didn't go for political reasons inside the Beltway. The political problems of maintaining a coalition of support to fund the program were just a difficult as were the technical problems that the engineers in the field were facing.
