What if the USA hadn't been the first nation to put a man on the Moon? What if the USSR had beaten them to it in 1969?
That's the premise driving Apple TV+ show For All Mankind. Co-created by Battlestar Galactica's Ronald D Moore, it presents an alternate timeline where the space race never ended, with Soviet success catalysing American efforts to catch up, and the resulting competition accelerating the rate of progress. So in this version of history there are Moon bases in the '70s, and a manned mission to Mars by the '90s.
Alongside the adventure of space travel, the show also explores how the socio-political backdrop of the time could have affected the space programme, and the private lives of the astronauts. SFX's reviewer said of season one: "There are plenty of stirring, thrilling, uplifting and tense set-pieces, and It’s all wonderfully nerdy, with Easter eggs designed to get space flight geeks excited."
Both season one and season two of For All Mankind are available to buy on Blu-ray now. Thanks to Dazzler Media we have three four-disc Blu-ray sets of season one to give away. To put your name in the hat for the chance to win one, simply answer the question below.
