Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
Astronomer Sir Patrick Moore presents rare archival footage of the first moon landing in this compilation of BBC coverage of the historic event. Watch as the Apollo 11 ascends to the heavens, see the astronauts' first, dramatic moonwalk, and witness the splashdown that brought the brave space explorers safely back to Earth. Intercut with the vintage live reports are the comments of BBC science reporter James Burke, who offers a detailed guide to space exploration by demonstrating the zero-gravity experience, testing an escape chute, and revealing how astronauts relieve themselves while wearing bulky space suits.
