"Letting the people, events, and images speak for themselves brings an unmatched authenticity to this remarkable chapter in human exploration. Very well done."

-Neil deGrasse Tyson, Astrophysicist and Frederick P. Rose Director, Hayden Planetarium, American Museum of Natural History, New York City, July 26, 2009

"The Apollo Years" reviews all the Apollo missions, back-to-back.

The Apollo Years reviews the Apollo Program Missions 1 through 17.

This is an historical document and documentary.

Using only archival film and the authentic communications between the Apollo capsules and Mission Control.

There is no narration; there is some music by the Cud Chewing Cows (the Band), aka 3C, no fancy Graphics, nothing but what happened, what was said, when and by whom.

"For those of us who witnessed the Apollo program it brings back memories and reminds us how things have changed (some unrelated to the main theme, like flight controlers sitting at their duty stations smoking!). For younger viewers it will serve as a good entrée for discovering and understanding the early space program."

- Alan W. Harris, Space scientist with North American Rockwell (builder of the Command Module) during the time of Apollo, later with Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), July 8, 2009


-All the Apollo Astronauts, All the Apollo Missions

-President Kennedy, President Johnson and President Nixon

-And a celebratory performance by Frank Sinatra

-Original Music by 3C (Cud Chewing Cows)
