Space Race

Image 1 / 10

Action-packed factual drama ‘Space Race' tells the fascinating story of the betrayal, rivalry and ruthless competition between two recklessly daring scientific leaders on opposing sides during the Cold War. Working for the Americans, the head of Hitler's V2 Rocket programme, Wernher von Braun, and the enigmatic Soviet project leader, known mysteriously as 'The Chief Designer', engaged in the multi-million dollar battle for the moon. Each despised the ideology of the opposition and was prepared to stop at nothing in pursuit of the ultimate goal- to build the most powerful rocket and dominate the world.
