Johnson , Dorothy Vaughan and Mary Jackson, brilliant African-American women working at NASA. They served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in history: the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit, a stunning achievement that restored the nation’s confidence, turned around the Space Race, and galvanized the world. The visionary trio crossed all gender and race lines to inspire generations to dream big. Reply Gwen Hadrill 22nd July 2016O Brother, Where Art Thou?

Reply Geoff Johnson 22nd March 2016“BRIDGE of SPIES” (2015)Those of us ‘of an age’ will remember the case of Gary Powers the U2 spy plane pilot shot down over the USSR. This film covers the complex attempts to repatriate him to the USA. Despite its title I would categorise this as a political rather than spy thriller. To my mind it features an outstanding performance from Mark Rylance (Thomas Cromwell in the BBC’s dramatisation of ‘Wolf Hall’) as the Soviet spy earmarked to be exchanged for Powers. Rylance won an Oscar, and several other awards for his performance. Tom Hanks also stars in this Steven Spielberg movie. ReplyLeave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
