National Geographic’s “Apollo: Missions to the Moon” tells the story, without narration, of Apollo 11’s historic moon landing 50 years ago.
The production team made a deliberate decision to tell the story without narration, to make the audience feel more immersed, director Tom Jennings told Space.com.
“What we wanted to do is create a time machine through film,” Jennings said, “to take people back in time — people who, perhaps, were alive then and don’t remember a lot of what went on and people who were too young to remember [now] — so that they could experience that almost in real time.”
“Apollo: Missions to the Moon” premieres tonight on National Geographic.
