In order to make sense of the upheaval in his life, he began keeping a diary on audiocassette. Upon their publication in 1990, Oliver Sacks described the work as 'the m...ost extraordinary, precise, deep and beautiful account of blindness I have ever read. It is to my mind a masterpiece.'

          Horticulturalist Christine Walkden takes us up, up and away in a hot air balloon for a birds eye view over a chosen county, flying over some of the finest gardens in the world. Her thrilling airborne adventure takes in some of the glories of the countryside as Christine gently fl...oats above, exploring the rich social, horticultural and - most importantly - human history of a treasured garden gem, discovering how it was created, how its maintained and how its an inspiration to others.

          Martha Cooper is an unexpected icon of the street art movement - a tiny, grey-haired figure running alongside crews of masked graffiti artists. In the 1970s, as the boroughs of New York City burned, she worked as a photographer for the New York Post, seeking images of creativity ...and play where others saw crime and poverty. As a result, she captured some of the first images of New York graffiti, at a time when the city had declared war on this new culture. Martha and her co-author Henry Chalfant compiled these images into the book Subway Art. However, the commercial failure of the book forced Martha to leave graffiti behind, moving on to document many other hidden cultures of New York. 20 years later Martha discovers she has become a legend of the graffiti world - a culture that has now exploded into a global movement. Subway Art became one of the most sold - and stolen - art books of all time, photocopied and shared by graffiti artists for decades. At 75 years of age, Martha finds herself navigating a culture vastly changed. The small community born from struggle and adversity, has grown into a commercial industry fuelled by the rise of social media. Now every new piece of street art is immediately uploaded, and crowds line up for selfies in front of popular works. Martha struggles to find her place in this new world, driven by a passion for capturing the creativity that helps people rise above their environment.

As the nine-day mission proceeds, audio from mission control captures the drama as it unf...olds - each moment revealing new dangers, new decisions and new wonders. For the first time on television, this documentary utilizes lost tapes of the astronauts, recorded before and after the mission, along with rare film and photos. The documentary reveals the doubts and fears of the astronauts as they stand on the brink of history.

President Nixon had already prepared a eulogy for the possible death of the astronauts on their mission to the moon. On the 50th anniversary of NASA's most audacious achievement, Moon Landing: The Lost Tapes reveals the incredible true story of mankind's greatest leap.Also within this collection, uncover the stories behind many of the other great feats accomplished during the age of space exploration with programs exploring Apollo 13, space stations and the space shuttle. This is a truly an out of this world collection of documentary features.
