    Apollo 11 - 2019 Film

    This film only had a limited release earlier this year, but if you've not seen it, it would be worth finding.

    It's a documentary the likes of which you've probably never seen before. There is no narrator or storytelling device.

    Instead, it uses film of real events, much of it never seen before, taken either by the media, or by journalists embedded in NASA to take you through the 8 day mission.

    I saw it last night and I was spellbound for the entire 90 minutes. I'll tell you what, if the moon landings were faked, then the director(s) of the fake should be given the biggest and last Oscar.

    In seriousness, what NASA achieved, (incidentally using a couple of 2kb computers), was truly remarkable.

    Find this film. It's a great watch.

    Agree 100%. It's amazing how engrossing it is, despite the story being well known.

    No. It was Matt Morton.

    Brian Eno's album was called "Apollo: Atmospheres and Soundtracks" and was released in 1983.

    It was on an IPTV stream.

    It'll be available to buy in the UK from 4 November.
