Washington Goes to the Moon: The Early Years
Produced by: Richard Paul
With 30 years' hindsight, Apollo 11's trip to the moon seems inevitable. But it was, in fact, an incredibly bumpy ride. And we're not talking about mechanical failures or the scientific and engineering challenges -- which were enormous. This is the other story of the Apollo program. Producer Richard Paul tells of the seven-year battle to balance politics and priorities inside the Capitol Beltway to land an American on the moon.
