Ron Howard produced a great HBO series called "From the Earth to the Moon". All of the episodes are good but Episode 5 titled "Spider" is my favorite. It shows the struggles Tom Kelly and Grumman went through during the LEM development. The series is on DVD and has been remastered for digital TVs. I think I'll fire up my VHS player tonight
I saw that when it was originally broadcast and recently bought a used DVD of it. A very good series, IMHO:I read Moon Lander too, also a great book. Wish I could find a used one really cheap like Chariots for Apollo. Tom Kelly was called the "Father of the Lunar Module".
Here's a great video about the LM, from the "Moon Machines" documentary series:
