    Hi There



    I was looking on youtube yesterday and found some clips on there of the BBC TV coverage of the Apollo Moon landings from the 1960s and 1970s.



    In some of the clips the BBC 4 logo can be seen in the corner.



    Does anyone know if some of the Original footage with James Burke and co was repeated recently (and I missed it !!!) on BBC4 ,...?



    If anyone did see it and/or has this on DVD can they PM me or contatc me via the Board



    Cheers



    Mike

    I think I'm right in saying that the actual transmissions from the surface of the moon were never recorded onto videotape, as they were live pictures (as in a news broadcast).



    So the only pictures we can now see of Neil Armstrong making his giant leap are poor quality films from one of NASA's monitors.

    See this thread:

    What BBC footage remains of the Apollo 11 mission was cobbled together and made into a 2 hour special which was shown on BBC 4 last year.



    I'm not sure what if anything is left of coverage of the other moon landing missions.

    I was watching some of the BBC4 programmes about the 40th anniversary of the moon landings and was wondering what had happened to James Burke. He wrote an article for the Apple magazine extolling the virtues of the Mac back in the mid 90s and last appeared on TV in 1997. Since then I've not seen anything by him. IMDB says he was born in 1936, so has he taken early retirement?
