Last night (July 8, 2019) was the first episode of a PBS documentary on the space program. It's done with a lot of drama but also appropriate distance. All the enthusiasm comes through, but also a lot of factual counterpoint. Some of it will please, some will grate, but it is probably among the better accounts of this effort, and the history that goes with it. It goes for two more nights, and is available in its entirety for about $34 on DVD. On my local station, it runs July 9 and 10 starting at 8 EDT. The first episode was two hours; the second two may just be one, but my station is inexact in showing its scheduling.
