  • Did You Know?

    As Patrick Moore notes at the beginning of this programme, much of the live commentary and discussion from the BBC's presentation of the moon landings has been lost. Producer Paul Vanezis pieced together this compilation using all of the surviving footage, including segments from the sound archives, bridged with suitable material from NASA's own recordings. Patrick Moore was then able to cover any missing segments with his own narration, which was specially recorded for this broadcast.
