I’m digging “For All Mankind,” one of the kickoff shows on Apple TV+. Alternate history where the Soviet N1 didn’t explode and Alexi Leonov landed on the moon two weeks before Apollo 11. The US space program thus stays pressurized (so to speak) and politically motivated to press on instead of Nixon losing interest and cutting Apollo. Ronald D “Battlestar” Moore is the executive producer.

It doesn’t get some of the background details quite right but it does a good job accurately assessing how the various historic figures involved (like Nixon) would really have reacted.
You might consider checking out From the Earth to the Moon.

Tom Hanks was the EP, chronicles the lead up to and the Apollo program in the 60s and 70s. Probably only counts as alternate history if you’re a moon landing conspiracy theorist. Made in 1998 and the special effects reflect that but it’s still got high production value.

Available on HBO GO and you can score a box set off Amazon for pretty cheap.

The Apollo 12 episode is probably the best single-episode, for obvious reasons once watched. "Spider" is a very close second. I actually want to rewatch it soon, as I haven't seen it in years. I do wish the F/X were able to have been transferred to HD (or at least 480p) when they made the DVD, as that seemed to be the biggest issue on my old DVD set.

They did an HD re-release for the 50th anniversary earlier this year. I believe the FX were updated for that.

I missed this series when it was first on HBO and I'm bummed it's only available as a DVD or via HBO GO neither or which are my thing.

Michael Collins is a great follow on Facebook; he posted this pic of the Apollo 12 crew with their matching Corvettes today.
