Moon Landings: The Lost Tapes
Monday 29 July at 21:00
When Neil Armstrong’s boot touched lunar soil on 20 July 1969, it was our momentous first foray into the universe around us. But the real truth of how we got to the Moon, the inelegant, messy and often harrowing reality of regular people actually doing the thing that was thought to be impossible – the fits and starts and mistakes and
explosions – that story hasn’t been told. For the 50th anniversary of man’s most audacious technological achievement, Moon Landing: The Lost Tapes will mine previously unexplored primary source material: audio interviews with astronauts and engineers locked away in NASA’s vaults, camera reels featuring lunar footage thought to be lost for a generation, home movies that have gathered dust for decades. Containing sit-down interviews and never-before-seen footage to tell surprising stories you’ve never heard before, we’ll take viewers inside man’s voyage to the Moon. (1x60”).
