Rocket Men

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Television -

Fri­day, 9.30pm, BBC Knowl­edge The fea­ture-length doc­u­men­tary tells the story of the Amer­i­can space race, from the very be­gin­ning to the present. It pro­files the rocket men who gave their lives for the cause as well as the sur­vivors, and shows some pretty epic footage of space, and of Saturn V rock­ets ex­plod­ing on lift-off and shortly there­after. The or­ches­tral and op­er­atic score is a tad over­done and in­tru­sive at times. Where the hell is El­ton John when you need him?
