Chasing the Moon reimagines the race to the moon for a new generation, upending much of the conventional mythology surrounding the effort. Utilizing a visual feast of previously overlooked and lost archival material — much of which has never before been seen by the public — Chasing the Moon features a diverse cast of characters who played key roles in these historic events.

This anticipated three-part series from American Experience will premiere on CPTV in a three-night event on July 8, 9, and 10, 2019. Get ready with PBS Previews: Chasing the Moon, a new special that provides an exclusive preview of the series!

On CPTV Spirit: Wednesday, June 5, 2019 at 5 p.m.
On CPTV: Wednesday, June 5, 2019 at 9:30 p.m.
