NASA: Tribute -- Mercury, Gemini, Apollo, and Skylab provides a time capsule of America's first steps into space. These four NASA-produced films, The World Was There, Legacy of Gemini, Time of Apollo, and Four Rooms, Earth View, chronicle the space missions and offer an overview of the historical and revolutionary period of the 1960s and 1970s. The World Was There, a discussion of Project Mercury, the United States' first man-in-space program, is narrated by Alexander Scourby. Legacy of Gemini looks at the concept of two-man spacecraft. Time of Apollo, the story of the moon missions, is narrated by Burgess Meredith. Four Rooms, Earth View documents and discusses Skylab, America's first experimental space station. E.G.
