Earthrise On PBS

Friday, November 1st, 2019

Christmas Eve, 1968 saw TV audiences captivated by a spectacle previously confined to the realms of science fiction: a live telecast of the lunar surface. The historic images came courtesy of NASA’s Apollo 8, the first manned space mission to leave Earth’s gravitational pull and orbit the moon.

Needless to say, this feat was not achieved without considerable risk. A catastrophic outcome could well have put paid to America’s goal of putting a man on the moon before the end of the decade. Earthrise: The First Lunar Voyage (November  4th, 7.50pm) examines what has been described as NASA’s most crucial mission, for which the astronauts had just four months to prepare. Interviews with those involved offer fascinating insights into the era’s high-stakes space race and the long and perilous road to Neil Armstrong’s “one small step”.

What the industry says about US

Canal Digital

Global Listings is one of the few companies we work with that actually has made the highlights easy for the user. It is great that the highlights come in time, have short descriptions of the highlighted content and always have the airing dates and times included. I rate you excellent.

NBC Universal Global Networks, Central and Eastern Europe

We have worked with Global Listings on the launch of new channels into Central and Eastern Europe and have been very impressed with the standard of service, prompt responses to schedule amendments and proactivity in getting schedule and highlights information in plenty of time, as well as the delivery of our EPG content.
