Moon Landings | Looking back to NASA's Apollo lunar missions
On 20 July 1969, Neil Armstrong became the first man to walk on the moon. This BBC Archive collection tells the story of the Apollo moon missions, how they got off the ground and why the missions came to an abrupt end.
Through over 40 years of radio and TV broadcasts, we meet some of the men who made that incredible journey and the reporters who brought their stories into our homes. We examine the legacy of the space race and look ahead to the future, when mankind might make that giant leap once again.
