    Left me wanting more info

    This film was technically very well-made: the sound and picture were excellent, the quality of the film, even the old black-and-white films of the early days of the space program was good. For me, there was one basic flaw: it assumes you already know a lot about the Russian space program. Gagarin is touched upon, and Tereshkova is mentioned only in passing. For those of you who are going into this with a great deal of curiosity and want to know more, I recommend you first see the bonus film, the English-language biography of Gagarin, STARMAN, before seeing the main program; it'll help a lot.
