    Synopsis


    Footprints on the Moon: Apollo 11
    As originally produced in 1969 by Barry Coe and directed by Bill Gibson, this historic documentary commemorates the most famous American space mission of all time: the July 1969 Apollo moon landing. The program observes the events leading up to that historic touchdown, including the many exhaustive preparations by astronauts Collins, Aldrin, Armstrong and others, the descent into the black shadow of the lunar surface, and the Pacific splashdown that brought everything to a triumphant end. The film actually intercuts footage shot by two film crews: one on board the shuttle itself, and another at Cape Kennedy in Florida and the Houston Space Center in Texas. It also includes a handful of extremely rare television transmissions from space, that William Gibson directed. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
