BBC AMERICA � ALL NEW U.S. PREMIERE DOCUMENTARIES TO MARK THE 40TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE MOON LANDING

JAMES MAY ON THE MOON � U.S. PREMIERE

Top Gear presenter James May fulfills his childhood dream by getting a taste of how it feels to fly to the edge of space. Driven by his passion for technology, James May seeks out both the astronauts and the nuts and bolts heroes of the space race � the men who built the machines that many consider to be man's greatest adventure. He takes a virtual test drive in some of the most impressive space vehicles ever built, and recreates some of the tests and stunts of the original pioneers in an interstellar version of Top Gear. Through advanced CGI manipulation of archive footage, May transports to the most iconic scenes of space, buckles up with Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin, lands the Eagle, and takes his very own space walk. His exploration also includes visits from some of the space veterans including Charlie Duke, Alan Bean and Harrison Schmitt - one of the last men to visit the moon.

James May on the Moon premieres Tuesday, November 10, 8:00 p.m. ET/PT

BEING NEIL ARMSTRONG � U.S. PREMIERE

40 years ago, Neil Armstrong made one of the most advanced steps in mankind as being the first man to set foot on the moon. And in the four decades since he first set foot on the moon, Armstrong has become increasingly reclusive. Andrew Smith, author of the best-selling book Moondust, sets out across America to find out about the real Neil Armstrong since walking on the moon. Andrew meets the people who knew the national hero, from his best friend to his barber, and finds the places where he lived and worked to discover the true nature of this most elusive and enigmatic man of the 20th Century.

Being Neil Armstrong premieres Tuesday, November 17, 8:00 p.m. ET/PT

APOLLO WIVES � U.S. PREMIERE

Apollo Wives looks in detail at the wives of Apollo astronauts - what it meant to be an Apollo wife, what was required of them by their astronaut husbands, by NASA and by the media. As America shot for the moon, these women were the focus of the world's media and were right at the heart of the most ambitious journey for mankind. In a series of exclusive interviews, the women reveal their remarkable stories and how it felt to watch their husbands blast off into space � and about the death, danger and divorce they faced as many of their spacemen struggled to come back to Earth.

Apollo Wives premieres Tuesday, November 24, 8:00 p.m. ET/PT
