On 20 July 1969 Apollo 11 landed on the Moon. However, some people insist that the United States faked the landing in film studios here on Earth. They argue that photos of the mission aren't real, radiation from the Sun would have killed the astronauts and NASA didn't have the ability to return a man safely from the Moon.
The videos in this collection examine the Moon landing conspiracy theories and highlight the opposing evidence, which proves astronauts really did walk on the Moon.

Some people insist the Moon landings were faked.
An expert explains why radiation didn't stop the Apollo astronauts.
Space imaging expert Douglas Arnold debunks conspiracist claims that danger from harmful space radiation prevented the Apollo Moon landings. Some people claim that NASA couldn't have sent astronauts to the Moon because they would have been killed by radiation.
Rocks collected during the Apollo missions are proof the astronauts landed on the Moon.
Space imaging expert Douglas Arnold joins Sir Patrick Moore to dispel conspiracy claims that the astronauts never landed on the Moon. The large quantity of rock brought back to Earth by the Apollo missions is strong proof, as Sir Patrick and Arnold explain.
Patrick Moore and his guest tackle a common Moon hoax claim.
Playing devil's advocate, Sir Patrick Moore asks space imaging expert Douglas Arnold about a common claim made by people who say the Moon landings were faked.
Jeremy Paxman talks to Richard C Hoagland who says there is evidence of a lunar civilisation.
Jeremy Paxman talks to Richard C Hoagland, founder of The Enterprise Mission. Hoagland says that his study of NASA and Soviet space records has convinced him that there is evidence of a civilisation on the Moon and Mars.
A journalist who covered the first Moon landing explains why he thinks it couldn't have been faked.
George Alexander of Newsweek magazine was one of thousands of journalists who followed the 1969 Moon mission. He believes the sheer numbers of witnesses and people working on the space programme means a hoax was impossible. Others say photographic evidence exists which shows the Moon landing was faked.
