Apollo: Missions to the Moon (National Geographic Documentary Films Soundtrack) - Apollo: Missions to the Moon is a documentary film directed by Tom Jennings (Diana: In Her Own Words) for National Geographic. The documentary covers the Apollo Space Program with raw media, eschewing narration for footage and audio of the program. This includes samples of never-before-audio pulled from over 800 hours of recordings and Apollo black box recordings, turning the documentary into an Apollo-era time machine. The score to Apollo: Missions to the Moon was composed by James Everingham and produced by Hans Zimmer (Gladiator, Inception) and Russell Emanuel. The soundtrack blends cosmic pieces with electronically manipulated sounds of 1960s space exploration, including the Apollo and Russian Sputnik programs. The end result is a fascinating, endlessly listenable work that stands tall on it's own.
