Synopsis by Matthew Tobey
In the wake of director Ron Howard's Hollywood blockbuster Apollo 13, Kultur Video produced this 1995 documentary program, covering the same subject. Detailing NASA's fifth lunar mission, Apollo 13: The Untold Story refuses dramatic embellishment in favor of the facts. The program includes actual footage from the mission as well as interviews with those NASA ground crew workers who watched the story unfold from the ground and worked to bring the astronauts home safely. Bill Mumy, former child actor and star of TV's Lost in Space, narrates.
