Part three in the story of Apollo 11's journey to the moon. A verbatim drama, performed by actors using the original NASA transcripts from the mission.

In this third episode - Cislunar Transit - Apollo 11 coasts across the void between the Earth and the Moon at nearly 4,000 miles per hour.

It's fifty years since Apollo 11 put human beings on another world. Over the anniversary week, Radio 4 tells the story of the five day journey to the moon, using the astronauts’ own words, which are taken entirely from the transcripts. We travel with Armstrong, Aldrin and Collins on their epic journey, experiencing everything as they did.

A unique perspective on the most historic journey in the history of humanity.
