The full Apollo 11 documentary? the one that CNN airs on the CNN channel is a cut down version of the APollo 11 movie. The full version/movie is better.

Based on a prior recommendation on here I watched the full On Demand version of this. Was very good. I was impressed with the video quality as well, must have been remastered for sure.

ah ok that's the one, the full version is 93 minutes, so i guess with commercials it's 2 hours. The uncut version is on amazon prime now.

If you're watching any of the shows and wondering about the audio/video delay between Earth/Moon:

from Reddit:


11
The delay for Earth-Moon communications is about 1.25 second (distance is ~ 380,000 km, the speed of light is ~300,000 km/s). You'd notice this delay only in conversations: every time ground control says something, it takes 2 seconds for the astronauts to respond.

In this video of the live broadcast (at 1:13:35) you can hear the delay: ground control says "go for depressurization", then you hear the echo of that coming back from the Moon, and the astronauts' response.

Some modern presentations of the moon landing will edit out the gaps created by the communication delay to make conversation sound more natural, but if you look at the timestamped transcripts, you can verify the 2.5 second round trip delay. Note that the timestamps all refer to the time the Earth-side recording occurred, so the radio delay appears when one of the crew members (CMP, CDR, LMP in the transcript) is responding to the Capcom (CC).

Same issue with satellite communication but not as long of a delay. Also something to notice with satellite communication is when you watch a newscast where the reporter in the studio is talking to the reporter in the field, and you hear the question from the studio then you see the field reporter get the question with a delay in their earpiece. Same with the news shows where people argue from different studies and talk over each other. In addtion for the time it takes to send the signal up to the satellite then back down to the dish, there is also process delays in all the equipment and data network.

yup, worked in TV for a few years. What got me thinking about it with regards to communicating earth<> moon was that they are actually editing it out of the conversations in the documentaries,

Some observations that stood out to me

People smoking in control rooms.
Mostly white men, clean hair cuts, with button down white shirts, pocket protectors and ties or a lab coat with the vendors logo on the back, e.g. IBM, Boeing, no fatties
Very few if any fatties in the shots of the public on the beach observing the launches

Conclusion, smoking kept people skinny.

Last night I saw the Armstrong Tapes. That was very fascinating. Also the Europa misssion and the Probe to the sun.

Finally, the challneger Disaster was also on last night. I remember I was in the Air Force at the time. But last night I saw footage that I had never seen before. Also, what was really sad, at the time was all the hope, the anticipation, the pre-launch party and excitement - It was an entire year's worth that led up to it - then there were 2 last minute cancellations. Finally lift off only to see it explode after 60 seconds

That had to have been one of he most humbling experiences in all of human history.

I have the THE moon missions recorded and lot s of other recordings that I will be watching.. I love Nat Geo
