Eight Days, three hours, 18 minutes, 35 seconds. That's the totla duration of the Apollo 11 moon mission - but we only saw a fraction of what happened. Using cutting-edge special effects and previously classified cockpit audio, 8 Days recreates the crucial scenes that were never filmed: the first sight of the moon, the dramatic touchdown, the nail-biting journey home.

Original archive footage is seamlessly blended with newly shot film to create a new view of history. This is the untold story of the most important space mission ever flown - and it's a giant leap for documentary storytelling.
