Apollo 13

We’re watching it at the moment. Great film, great cast, great music…. When it came out, my high school principal hadn’t realised that it was a true story: he was in the NZ equivalent of the SAS, in Vietnam, and the news was censored so that morale wasn’t affected. And this was one story that didn’t make it through. Although quite how he managed not to hear about it over the next 20+ years is something I never figured out.
