The BBC's Space Race is a documentary/drama chronicling the major events and characters in the American/Soviet space race, leading up to the first moon landing. The series concentrates on Sergei Korolev, the Soviet chief rocket designer, and Wernher von Braun, his American counterpart, as their rivalry intensifies and the pressure to be the first builds.
When Neil Armstrong stepped onto the moon in 1969, America went down in popular history as the winner of the space race. But that history is bunk. The real pioneers of space exploration were the Soviet cosmonauts. This remarkable feature-length documentary combines rare and unseen archive footage with interviews with the surviving cosmonauts to tell the fascinating and at times terrifying story of how the Russians led us into the space age. A particular highlight is Alexei Leonov, the man who performed the first spacewalk, explaining how he found himself trapped outside his spacecraft 500 miles above the Earth. Scary stuff.
A young child in 1969 embarks on a quest to beat the Russians to the moon by building a homemade space ship with some help from his hometown friends. Through their journey they discover the ultimate power of hope and imagination.
This was a project done for a AP US History course, hence the mundane performances and obvious budgetary restraints. It is in our honor to present you a glimpse into the Space Race.
As tensions between the Soviets and Americans increase on the lunar playing field, Jorge Galleguillos, an average American citizen, rises to challenge and joins NASA to help the United States land a man on the moon. Along the way, he faces many obstacles, including but not limited to the societal backlash to heavy federal funding for the space program.
Yogi's Space Race is a 90-minute Saturday morning cartoon program block and the third incarnation of Hanna-Barbera's Yogi Bear. It ran from September 9 to December 2, 1978 for NBC. The show also appeared on BBC in the United Kingdom. It contained the following four segments: ⁕Yogi's Space Race: intergalactic racing competitions with Yogi Bear, Jabberjaw, Huckleberry Hound and several new characters. ⁕Galaxy Goof-Ups: Yogi Bear, Scare Bear, Huckleberry Hound and Quack-Up as four intergalactic police officers and their leader, Captain Snerdley. ⁕The Buford Files: Buford is a lazy bloodhound who solves mysteries in Fenokee County with two teenagers, Cindy Mae and Woody. ⁕The Galloping Ghost: Nugget Nose is a ghost miner who is a guardian to Wendy and Rita, two teenage cowgirls who work at the Fuddy Dude Ranch. When Galaxy Goof-Ups was given its own half-hour timeslot on November 4, 1978, Yogi's Space Race was reduced to 60 minutes; in early 1979, the "Space Race" segment and Buford and the Galloping Ghost were also spun off in their own half-hour series until September 1979. The series was later aired in reruns on the USA Cartoon Express, Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network, and Boomerang.
