On May 25, 1961, President John F. Kennedy of the United States of America committed the resources of his nation and launched Project Apollo - the greatest technological undertaking in the history of mankind. But in 1972, only two years after Neil Armstrong first walked on the moon, public and political interest in Apollo had dwindled. NASA was forced to cancel their last three missions, making Apollo 17 man's final mission to the moon. Astronauts Eugene Cernan, Harrison Schmitt and Ronald Evans were the three brave men chosen to fly NASA's final mission. They have been written up in history books and acknowledged by the space and scientific communities, but have never received the public recognition they truly deserved. Apollo 17's voyage to the moon was the crowning glory of man's lunar exploration. This documentary features spectacular NASA footage and exclusive interviews with space scientists who worked on the Apollo programme during the 1960s and '70s. This is the remarkable story of the determination and courage of a generation, and a tribute to three brave astronauts and the thousands of men and women behind them during the final days of NASA's Apollo programme.

The push for smarter farming is at the core of Australia's tough agricultural history. Richard and Clarence Smith quarrelled over who was the true inventor, but their stump-jump plough improved the economic prospects of farmers working difficult terrain. Frederic Wolseley's mechanical shears eventually won over the shearers and transformed the wool industry. Lew Bandt designed the ute for farmers needing a comfortable working vehicle, and Benjamin Dunkerley invented a fur-cutting machine that led to the iconic Akubra.

While it took 60,000 years for the inventors of the returnable boomerang to receive recognition for their aeronautical achievements.

The '50s brings ham with tinned peaches, canapes, cocktails and the first televised Queen's speech, while Fred's '60s gift of a chocolate smoking set would hardly raise an eyebrow back in the day.
