All-New Special Premiering in 2015

ONE GIANT LEAP chronicles the tragedies, fears, and pressures of the 1960s space race, leading to a remarkable miracle that united and inspired Americans across the nation. Amidst unheralded violence and turmoil, a besieged generation looked past tragedy and rose to its feet to welcome a new generation of heroes in a time when heroes were badly needed. Interviews with the surviving astronauts, families, and other key players, along with stunning high-definition NASA films and never-before-seen home movie collections, transport viewers back in time to discover a fascinating, untold story of our nation's journey to the moon.
