In 1995 the BBC made a documentary about the creation of Space Mountain, called "Shoot For The Moon". It was a fascinating 44 minute programme, following Tim Delaney and his team in bringing Jules Vernes' "From The Earth To The Moon" book to life.
The report shows the whole development of the attraction, from conception, over contruction up to testing and fine tuning the final attraction. Of course also problems during this process arise ...
The documentary was orignally broadcast on BBC2, but was also aired on other channels in many different countries.
