Dramatized portrayal of the Apollo manned space program.
To simulate the low gravity on the moon the actors had large helium balloons attached to their space suits by long wires. The wires were removed digitally in post production.

For the DVD release, the series was cropped slightly at the top and bottom of the frame. This was done to create a presentation that would be enhanced for viewing on widescreen television sets.
