A perfect presentation of a seldom mentioned aspect of the Apollo 11 mission.
Msrcstewart via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/04/23
I found both series absolutely compelling. Such incredible events recounted in a way that is detailed yet easy to follow. This podcast should not be missed.

We all know the what happened but in this podcast series we can learn so much about our human bravery, ingenuity, curiosity and hope for the future. Amazingly put together.

A real life story that is hard to believe when you think of all the challenges they had to overcome. Brilliant.

This is incredible!

This podcast is a space enthusiast’s dream. It is not only a fantastic, clear, compelling production with lots of drama, great spatial music, great crew interviews and original mission recordings, but it also explains the facts in amazing in-depth technical detail. If you want to know what it was...Read full review »

Incredible interviews, real nail biting stuff. I’ve wept, I’ve held my breath, I’ve rejoiced. Genuinely gripping.

Seriously, the best thing I have ever heard on headphones ever.

Fantastic listen - was absolutely hooked from the first episode.

One of the best things I have ever listened to. Brought tears to my eyes several times. I remember Apollo 13 very well - my entire school dedicated prayers for their safe return. Their safe return was a greater feat than if the original mission had gone to plan.

I remember as a young lad watching the first landing on the moon, not really understanding the true implication of what was happening but being fascinated by it all. Then came Apollo 13 and again still interested in it but too young to understand the true drama. These podcasts were absolutely...Read full review »

This podcast is truly amazing, a one-of-a-kind podcast. It is descriptive, informative and an out-of-this-world podcast (lol) Hope there’s more coming. (When humans get to Mars are you going to do a podcast about that?) Lol. Keep up the great work.

If you are fascinated by all things space like me this is an unbeatable podcast! You will be amazed and awed by all the behind the scenes activities at NASA and the incredible interviews with people that were there! I cried more than once at the sheer scope of the bravery, ingenuity and the...Read full review »

One of the best pods out there, especially for space nerds
seanwhooooooop via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/24/23
Loved this podcast. The production value is incredible. The show was so immersive with the audio clips, amazing score and pacing. At times it felt like you were up there with the astronauts or down in Mission Control. It was gripping, exhilarating and felt like a movie. Binge-worthy for sure....Read full review »

The best
TLKingdom via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/16/23
One of the best podcasts I’ve listened to. Even though I knew the outcome of both seasons, I was kept on the edge of my seat throughout the listen. As someone who didn’t live through the Apollo missions, I learned so much, but think that those who did would enjoy just as much. I’m so happy that I...Read full review »

Startling and simply gripping from the start. You are pulled in and locked into this series by the sheer brilliance of the content and the characters. Kevin Fong’s ability to navigate the factual story is purely exemplary. I remember the Apollo missions although quite young but, I remember being...Read full review »

Gripping and entertaining from start to finish even the second time around!
Adam-bath via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/11/23
This is absolutely amazing work, the story itself and its retelling. I look forward to these episodes and am totally intrigued by the shuttle for series 3.
DKd79 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 06/11/23
Season 3 is now announced from one of the greatest Podcast series created. The episodes are captivating, detailed and so accessible.
TomasT321 via Apple Podcasts · Ireland · 05/26/23
Had to rate this less than 5 stars because of the strange feeling I had listening to the teaser for Season 3. Dr. Kevin Fong, who was the host of the first two seasons, has been fundraising his next podcast “16 Sunsets” independent of the BBC about the US Space Shuttle program. The timing and...Read full review »

As a kid growing up in Houston, NASA was a big deal. Now that I'm older, I have come to appreciate what the space program meant to my city, and me as I grew up. This podcast is so well done with Kevin Fong and especially the interviews of the players behind the consoles in Mission Control....Read full review »

So well done, fascinating look at history.
MLC Revy via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 04/08/23
I don’t usually write reviews, but after listening to the two seasons of this, it left me wishing there was more. It was well produced and was definitely a good listen! If you are a fan of the space program, then you should give this a listen!
Kuhl Guy via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/12/23
Gripping story well told. Music is excellent.

Really well done

What an incredible podcast. Utter gold. Has reignited my childhood love of space… Some amazing interviews and insights and topped with Zimmer? I mean, come on! 😂
GWMunday via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/06/23
I’ve seen a lot of info on Apollo 11 and 13, but this series adds so much. So we’ll written, the backing soundtrack is brilliant, and it all comes together with so much emotion. Do not pass on these two brilliant series.
taipanfan via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 02/04/23
Podcasts like this are why the BBC is the greatest public service broadcaster in the world. Great production, new and archive interviews, fantastic score. Could not be improved upon.
Kevin S, via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/03/23
The story of the Apollo programme has been told beautifully here. It proves we can achieve anything if we simply put our mind to it and we did, we went to the moon!! And this pod cast tells the story in such a way it makes you look up in wander. Top work. Cannot wait to listen to the series 2!...Read full review »

Can you do one on Apollo 12? Lightning hitting the Saturn? John Aaron Sce to Aux etc, precision landing etc Amazing podcast for both series
Sir Staniel via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/11/23
Kevin Fong is fantastic at telling the stories of Apollo’s 11 & 13, through different interviews etc. It is extremely interesting to listen to and we’ll worth a listen. I’ve listened to them at least 4 times by now, it’s that good. 10/10 BBC, NASA and Kevin.
Sir Rob 41 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 12/15/22
It’s an amazing series, I can guess how much research , teamwork, and hard work it must’ve been to produce this powerful podcast. The listener quite find themselves in the entire journey to moon. The narration creates the pictures in mind as if I am seeing outside my module. You successfully...Read full review »

Such great stories told from a people point of view. Space programs offer so much excitement, development and joy and they do a wonderful job communicating that.
F86sabre via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/01/22
I discovered the first series in lockdown and was absolutely hooked. So interesting and cleverly done. Love the interviews / archives with the actual people. Can’t believe I have only just realised there is a second series, also just as gripping, what an unexpected treat. I’ve learnt so much and...Read full review »

I have had a great life experience listening to this production. There’s so much I’d like to say but mainly thank you thank you thank you. I was a nine year-old boy, school was closed and the teacher walked all of us to a nearby parents house so we could watch Neil Armstrong walk on the moon....Read full review »

Absolutely amazing pod cast, totally glued
TIO SEG via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 08/21/22
I expected the twelve episodes would mean the series would give an in-depth, definitive account of the Apollo programme. But really it’s just the absolute basics stretched paper thin, with an ever-present dramatic soundtrack.
Andrew_DLR via Apple Podcasts · Ireland · 08/15/22
Amazing pod cast. I was gripped by every episode. Well done Kevin and team
