Since July 1969 countless documentaries have attempted to capture the essence of what it was like to fly to the moon during the glory days of the Apollo program. Some have been fairly successful, but usually feature the standard talking heads and grainy umpteenth-generation film footage. The documentary, In the Shadow of the Moon directed by David Sington, focuses on the men and achievements of the Apollo space missions between 1968 and 1972 in which 9 Apollo space craft visited the moon and 12 men walked upon its surface. The film's story is told via the personal stories and reminiscences of the remaining Apollo astronauts. They talk about what they gained and learnt from their experiences and how the Apollo missions changed their perspective of life, humanity and the universe.

Beautiful and rarely seen footage has been taken from the archives at NASA, transferred to high-definition video, and given new life in a way never before imagined.
