There's been some great programmes on TV and radio about the moon landing 50 years ago. I thought I'd start a thread so people could add links


To start us off, here's a short piece by the much-missed James Burke. That voice!! I've been transported back half a century  Shocked

Interesting, have any of the Fairport books or lads mentioned that memorable night ?

Well, Chris L wrote a song about it (Moondust and Solitude)

Hmm, I'm more thinking of a hilarious comment I seem to recall at the time of landing; from a local.
Was it a crescent moon that night, the ends pointing up, semi obscured, kinda orange /yellowish ?

Sorry, by much-missed I meant his regular presence on TV, rather than that he was no longer with us. I loved his programmes, science presented in an interesting way so that anyone could understand and enjoy it.
