Apollo 13: One family’s agony and triumph

On 11 April 1970, the Lovell household viewed their husband and father, Jim Lovell, blast off on Nasa’s third mission to land on the Moon.

But this was to be an unwell-fated mission, and in the six times that followed, the Lovells observed on their own dealing with powerful agony.

As the 50th anniversary of the mission approaches, we listen to Jim’s wife, now 89, and his daughter and son, now in their 60s, relive their extraordinary tale.
