New OU/BBC programme ‘8 Days: To the Moon and Back’

We have a new OU/BBC programme ‘8 Days: To the Moon and Back’ airing on Wednesday 10th July on BBC Two at 9pm. Our own Mahesh Anand was the academic advisor to this co-production, a fascinating drama-documentary portraying in dramatic reconstruction the ultimate human adventure using previously classified cockpit audio recorded by the astronauts and original footage from the Apollo programme - combined with newly shot reconstruction of key moments and cinematic CGI. 

On Friday, 28th June, a public pre-screening took place at the Science Museum in London followed by a panel discussion and Q&A. Mahesh was one of the five panel members and the OU was mentioned throughout the discussion, with our research appearing prominently several times.
