FEE FIE FOE FEE FIE FOE FEE FIE FOE is an award-winning production company specialising in creative non-fiction founded by Matt Houghton, Peter Middleton and James Spinney.

In April 1970, NASA faced the greatest crisis in its history; three astronauts stranded halfway to the moon on a spacecraft that had suffered a catastrophic explosion. What unfolded over the next four days was a rescue mission like no other; a knife-edge, life-or-death drama, broadcast in real-time to the watching world.

This iconic story is told with rare access to the complete audio recordings of the Apollo 13 mission, never-before-seen film from the NASA archives, and interviews with the crew, their families and the team at ground control. The approach immerses the audience in the unfolding drama of one of the great survival stories in human history.

"Some stories are worth retelling, particularly when they are as well told as this... a white-knuckle viewing experience.”
