Apple TV Plus series For All Mankind has just wrapped up its second season and this is a good as place as any to get into the series.
The series started in the 1960s with the premise that the Soviets got to the moon first and the implications of that event on the space race and international relations in general.
The second season fast forwards into the 1980s where permanent bases on the moon are by then in place.
The drama escalates from there as Soviet – US relations are put to the test. The Cuban Missile crises is peanuts to what goes on in this series.
Apple TV Plus is of course a paid subscription service, but is freely available for recent purchasers of Apple products.
