- Mission Control from Mercury to Apollo 13 and Beyond
- By: Gene Kranz
- Narrated by: Danny Campbell
- Length: 18 hrs and 14 mins
Gene Kranz was present at the creation of America's manned space program and was a key player in it for three decades. As a flight director in NASA's Mission Control, Kranz witnessed firsthand the making of history. He participated in the space program from the early days of the Mercury program to the last Apollo mission, and beyond. He endured the disastrous first years when rockets blew up and the United States seemed to fall further behind the Soviet Union in the space race.

Fascinating view from those in the room
If you ever wanted to be a fly on the wall during the early days, Gene gives a frank and human point of view of the people and technical challenges of Mercury through to Apollo. Even if you have just a passing curiousity in the space program you'll enjoy.
