History Channel by rickegee

This collective is for movies,music,documentaries,angry rants, and any controversial sifts that would qualify as 'historical documents.' If you believe that any posting is a historical document or provides a competing view contrary to 'accepted' history, then please feel free to post it in this collective.

I DO NOT want this to be a collective only of staid government films, videos of Presidents and the powerful giving speeches, or safe-for-toddlers History Channel stuff.

What is historically momentous may be subjective. However, personal MySpace video diary 'histories' are discouraged.

Please feel free to leave a profile message for me if you would like to join.

American Experience's Chasing The Moon Documentary

http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/americanexperience/films/chasing-moon/ (3 parts with 112 minutes each for a total of 336 hours).

"It took millions of steps to make one giant leap.

'Chasing the Moon,' a film by Robert Stone, reimagines the race to the moon for a new generation, upending much of the conventional mythology surrounding the effort. The series recasts the Space Age as a fascinating stew of scientific innovation, political calculation, media spectacle, visionary impulses and personal drama. Utilizing a visual feast of previously overlooked and lost archival material — much of which has never before been seen by the public — the film features a diverse cast of characters who played key roles in these historic events. Among those included are astronauts Buzz Aldrin, Frank Borman and Bill Anders; Sergei Khrushchev, son of the former Soviet premier and a leading Soviet rocket engineer; Poppy Northcutt, a 25-year old “mathematics whiz” who gained worldwide attention as the first woman to serve in the all-male bastion of NASA’s Mission Control; and Ed Dwight, the Air Force pilot selected by the Kennedy administration to train as America’s first black astronaut."
